A Mother Figure to Many

Ameena Matthews has her own children. But the passion that fuels her charge as an interrupter has proven so effective, that many of the young people whose lives she has helped improve refer to her as "mom" or "auntie." Being a community activist isn't Ameena Matthews' job, it's her purpose. Congratulations, we salute you for being on the front lines!
