TJC Mothers of the Year

Photo by Mark MosrieWorking with families in times of crisis, TJC has witnessed the extraordinary love and courage of mothers. We have stood with parents who persistently advocate for not only their own children, but all children in need of health care.

Every Mother’s Day we honor the strength and determination of these advocates with the Tennessee Justice Center Mothers of the Year. Our staff recruits volunteer photographers, and then provides our honorees with framed “Mother of the Year” certificates and framed family photos.

“The responses from the women TJC honors have been overwhelming,” says Kate Crosby, a former paralegal at TJC.  “For many of our clients, this is first time in their lives that anyone told them that they are leaders, examples, heroes.”

To read about why we honor courageous moms, foster moms, and grandmothers around Mother’s Day each year, please read this story by our Executive Director, Michele Johnson.

We gain our strength from these mothers who don’t give up. We won’t give up either, and we need your help so that we can continue to fight alongside these moms.
