First Responders

Harlem Mothers S.A.V.E was formed in 2006 by Jackie Rowe-Adams Co-Founder with the support of New York State Assemblyman, Keith L.T Wright. Mrs. Rowe-Adams lost two of her children to gun violence.  One child on February of 1982, her 17-year-old son Anthony was murdered outside a bodega at 123rd Street in Harlem by two young men who believed that Anthony had been staring at them.  Her second child Tyrone, age 28 at the time, was shot to death by a thirteen-year-old during a robbery outside his apartment in Baltimore, Maryland. “One of our goals at Harlem Mothers S.A.V.E. is to let families know about where and how these guns are getting to our children...Many parents are still surprised about where kids can get them, but bodegas, certain housing projects and city parks have all been identified as locations where gun sales take place.” –Mrs. Jackie Rowe-Adams.

At our organization, every life matters.
