M.I.C. (Multiple Levels in Communities) formerly known as Project M.I.C. started as a single church Domestic Violence Program Ministry, and eventually expanded, receiving full non-profit status in 2005, to include services to individuals, groups and organizations throughout the Greater Seattle area and beyond. Multi-Communities also provides technical assistance, information and workshops in other States as well, including:
• Southern Christian Leadership Conference AIDS Project in Dayton, Ohio
• Women’s Global ministries in New York
• Churches of Christ in La Place, Louisiana, Jacksonville, Tennessee, and Atlanta, Georgia
• Other faith communities in Las Vegas, Nevada, and Cleveland, Ohio.
• One of the stars of the Internationally viewed video, “Broken Vows,” by Faith Trust Institute
Multi-Communities(M.I.C.) has held multiple Greater Seattle area wide events, some of which have included:
• Candlelight vigils for 18 years
• Soul Food/Food Soul for homeless men in shelters and housing programs (10 years)
• Meals Honoring Families in cooperation with Black Firefighter Association (6 years)
• Teen Dating Violence workshops and survivor panels
It is important to note: The Bright Stars, an African American male singing group from four different Seattle Churches of Christ participated in most of the major events for over 12 years. Along with a group of volunteers with multiple cultures and backgrounds, they have all helped to make the organization successful.
Our latest Projects include: “Breathing While Black, Part I,” a filmed event featuring an intergenerational panel of African American men from different communities speaking about their personal struggles, challenges, and calling all men to help end intergenerational cycles of violence against women and children. (Part II, is scheduled for late 2015)
A Community Garden Project for Parents and Children focused on helping young moms, who are abuse survivors and their children in their emotional healing process currently being implemented.
