Sisters United Resilient and Empowered (SURE) is a peer support group for mothers of youth within the juvenile justice system. Facilitated by an Outreach Worker, SURE meets weekly with Moms. The group focuses on providing a space to listen, encourage, teach, and learn from each other’s experience. In addition to providing one-to-one support and community building among mothers in our target communities, SURE Moms also serve as a vehicle for family engagement and feedback to the justice system. Sharing their family’s stories and helping to implement youth violence prevention plans, they coordinate community mobilization, social intervention, and organizational change to address youth, crime and violence.
