A TWO YEAR SURVIVORSHIP

THE MISSION

SNMM is a hands-on nonprofit charitable organization who is committed to working with organizations, agencies, community members, elected officials, survivors, and real time victims who come to the table by choice and not by force to make a difference in what should be considered a community epidemic.

 

A two year platform that supports a victim into survivorship will decrease the amount of times a victim returns which will can have a domino effect on lowering isolation, depression, embarrassment, financial loss, generational abuse, and even deaths.

Forums such as this, DV sensitivity training, and all community endeavors unite us in efforts to avoid temporary bandages and focus more on casts. Casts are used to immobilize injuries, promote healing, and reduce pain and further injuries while the injury heals.

We believe that there should be a unified understanding that the high rate of victims returning an average of 7-12 times to their abusers suggests there is a breakdown within our system. Unfortunately the healing process doesn’t necessarily begin when a victim of abuse is finally away from their abuser. Most victims don’t even realize the extent of their abuse until months later once considering the other types of abuse they endured such as; mentally, verbally, emotionally, financially, spiritually, and sexually abused in addition to the physical abuse. If we decrease the victim returning statistics it lowers the amount of isolation, embarrassment, generational abuse, and deaths.

It is a unified understanding that it is not the nature of the relationship that determines abusiveness; it is the actions of the abuser.

COMING TO THE TABLE BY CHOICE

COMMUNITY ENDEAVORS THAT CREATES MOVEMENT, COMMUNICATION, AWARENESS, VISIBILITY & CHANGE.

SURVIVOR & SUPPORT SYSTEM CEREMONY

SNMM is a believer that there are different levels of support systems for real-time victims and survivors, such as friends, family, coworkers, community members, organizations, and agencies, who are sometimes there long before the police and attorneys. 

 

Survivors are instrumental in motivating and refueling survivors who utilize their past experiences to help empower others.

Annually this ceremony recognizes survivors that circle back to help strengthen victims and current survivors. Directly and indirectly due to commitment to community, excellence, and the highest standards of ethical conduct, integrity, and civic and social responsibility.
