Due to the large number of indiviuals who need grief and trauma support and services, plans are underway to open up two more groups at different site locations.

The groups are free of charge to the Mothers and family members who were denied Victims of Crime Services.

MIssion Statement:

It is our mission to educate and promote healthier lifestyles by raising the level of consciousness about the harmful consequences of gun violence within homes, schools, nieghborhoods and communities.


In June 2003 M.A.S.K. was formed with two mothers, since that time we have connected with over 100 Mothers here in the city of Richmond.
