The Kristin Mitchell Foundation became part of Clery Center.

April 8th, 2018

The evolution of our dating violence cause will be outstanding.
In the fall of 2017, the Board of Directors of the Kristin Mitchell Foundation voted to dissolve and grant our assets to Clery Center. Today, the cause we have dedicated our minds and hearts to since Kristin’s death in 2005, lives on through this outstanding nonprofit foundation. It is significant news or the dating violence cause.

The Clery Center, founded thirty years ago, is a national organization dedicated to helping college and university officials meet the standards of the Jeanne Clery Act. By equipping professionals with the training and resources they need to understand compliance requirements, Clery strives to make campus safety a universal reality.

The Clery Center has added a new initiative called Kristin’s Krusade.
The name KMF used for our 5k run/walks, Kristin’s Krusade is the title of the dating violence area of expertise within Clery. Kristin Mitchell’s memory and legacy continue to live on. 

Over the years, the Kristin Mitchell Foundation received scores of nice notes. They represent the “wins” that come from a message necessary to people’s lives. We will keep these with us in our hearts forever.

“I listened to what you said and decided to get counseling.” 

“Your daughter Kristin’s story was my inspiration not only to leave my abusive boyfriend but to start my work to help others leave their abusive relationships.”

“You gave me the courage to see what was becoming an abusive relationship. I would just like to thank you for asking us the question, ‘Is this really the best you can do in a relationship?’ This made me realize I do not deserve this kind of treatment and there will be someone else out there who treats me with the respect I deserve. I will be passing this on to all of my friends, sister, and anyone who is experiencing the trauma of dating violence.”

“Seeing Kristin’s beautiful smile, hearing her story… it’s one of the things that had helped me find the courage to say no. I don’t deserve this kind of life, I deserve so much more. My children deserve so much more. Kristin’s story helped me take that first step I needed to when I was scared to do so.”

“My mom wanted me to break up with him but I didn’t until I heard what you said. Then it became obvious what I needed to do.”  

“Life is great! I couldn’t be happier since I left that relationship.”
