DFW/Texas Circle of Mothers
DFW Circle of Mothers will network and reach out to other mothers that are in need of support after losing a child to gun violence. Events are planned throughout the year to encourage one another.
The many mothers of Journey 4ward know all too well what it’s like to struggle everyday just to get through the day.
Journey 4ward walks this journey of grief with each mother; we together prepare ourselves and support one another in this journey. To know that they are not alone when at times they feel no one can ever understand; there is another mother that does.
Connecting with other mothers that have lost their own children to gun violence helps our mothers find hope, strength and healing. Our mothers will take away from this group- strength and hope and lots of understanding that they did not come with.
