  2. Full Description

Kansas City Mothers In Charge

Program Summary:
In response to the overwhelming numbers of non-fatal shooting victims in Kansas City—which ballooned to 631 in 2020—Survivors Will Heal was developed in 2021 to provide a critical and much needed response for these victims. 

While clergy or mental health service providers may assist these victims, KC MIC offers community-based intervention and bridges the gap between law enforcement, victims of shootings and neighborhood residents to prevent future acts of violence. After a victim, aged 17 or older, has experienced a shooting, KC MIC provides trauma-informed crisis intervention and support to victims and their family members, explaining police procedures and helping manage grief, hostility, confusion and anger. 

Shooting victims receive information about KC MIC services, victims’ rights, Crime Victims’ Compensation, the investigation process, and safety planning. They also have access to the Survivors Will Heal support group, which provides an educational portion to the session, as well as an opportunity for group sharing on a more emotional level.
