Fire Mission: Relocate Abused Mom and Shaken Baby


We have an URGENT mission coming to us from Shelby County (Memphis) TN.  A young mother’s abusive relationship has tragically culminated with a six week old infant being shaken violently by the father, he is in the ICU at Le Bonheur and expected to make it, but it’s touch and go right now.

The mother is unwilling to return to the apartment because she fears (rightfully) that her abuser will come back.  An order of protection is being worked on as we speak.

Mama has nowhere to go and doesn’t have the funds to do a deposit and move utilities.  We have an immediate need to raise $2,500 to cover first month’s rent, security deposit, and basic furniture so she doesn’t have to set foot in the old apartment.

She is sober and gainfully employed.

A new beginning requires a new approach and that’s exactly what we’re bringing to the most dangerous streets in America.

From getting narcotics traffickers off the streets, often  without ever involving law enforcement except in the most egregious of cases, to mitigating gang violence, to mentoring inner city youth in creative ways, we have a narrow focus around making sure the next generations raised on these streets are not raised BY the streets.

Your contribution of $10 helps us keep kiddos fed, $100 provides outreach and housing navigation, $1,000 helps provide transportation to single moms and kids getting an education, and on and on.

Its going to take us all to make a difference, and that means YOU!

We Are The Dead

We are the Dead is a sister organization to Flanders Fields, to carry their mission to those encountered on the streets, on the dope track, in the prisons and in the hell of addiction or sex trafficking who aren't veterans. Nobody on the Flanders team will step over the dead bodies of civilians to save a vet, but within the confines of the charter, funding can only be allocated to veterans. The need to stand up a second org focused on non-veteran funding for rescues and recoveries was immediately apparent, and to date, the Flanders team has been funding these efforts out of their own pockets, but no more! We are the Dead gets it's name from the same poem by LtCol John McCrae that Flanders Fields got it's name from, which reads in part: "

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields."

We are here to restore life to those who were once dead to their addictions and the streets, for we were once the dead ourselves.
