Mahogany CARES Story
Get To Know Us
Mission and Vision
Mahogany CARES was founded in 2010 by Cyrena Mahogany Martin and was created to bring awareness to issues affecting women, families, and the community. Breast cancer and domestic violence affected the lives of many of those closest to Cyrena and she saw fit to create an organization that could touch the lives of many while providing them support and resources as they determine their path in life.
Since its inception, Mahogany CARES has and continues to honor survivors and those we lost from breast cancer and domestic violence. In 2010, we began celebrating breast cancer survivors and remembering those who lost their fight through the annual Breast Cancer Awareness event. The event is a day to thank our SHEROES for having the courage to tell their stories to encourage others and save lives through awareness. In May 2017, Mahogany CARES Breast Cancer Survivor Day proclamation was signed by Governor Scott Walker, making October 1st Breast Cancer Survivor Day in the State of Wisconsin.
In 2016, Mahogany CARES wrote a proclamation to make October 21st Domestic Violence Survivor Recognition Day. On this day, we celebrate success after abuse by allowing survivors to share how they overcame & conquered domestic violence and move forward in a positive direction in their lives.
Mahogany CARES is dedicated to bringing awareness to issues that are plaguing our community and support those that are affected. Please remember you are not alone. We are here to support and protect you.
