Mission Statement: The Kristine Meza Foundation’s Mission is to raise awareness in our community on the impact of domestic violence. The foundation is committed to strengthen individuals by education, compassion and courage. To serve as a resource to those associated with its physical, emotional and mental harm and by doing so, preventing the loss of wholesome lives.
History of KMF: The Kristine Meza Foundation was organized in response to a tragic event that occurred on February 11, 2011. Kristine Meza fell victim to domestic violence. She was ambushed in her driveway on her way to work by her estranged ex-boyfriend. As a result, a group of individuals united to embark on a mission in hopes of making a difference for those who feel locked in silence. KMF was born September 2011. Our goal is to host an annual STOP THE SILENCE, END THE VIOLENCE 5K Run/Walk in order to raise more awareness on the issue and impact of domestic violence. Along with hosting an annual 5K run to generate awareness, KMF’s goal is also to recruit as many support members and offer resources for help.
