A REQUEST FROM THE FAMILY: Jean S. Campbell left behind a legacy of absolute devotion to God and love for her community. Mother Campbell, as she was known by many, established and maintained several community based, totally non-profit, outreach programs known as â€œThe Brothers Keepers Missionâ€. Mostly established in venues along the strip of H Street Northeast, Washington DC, â€œThe Brothers Keepers Missionâ€, was a safe haven for anyone in need of spiritual guidance, shelter from homelessness, and daily home cooked meals. Home to many, including herself, Mother Campbell’s revolving door nurtured the recovery of all walks of life and circumstances, including individuals battling drug and alcohol addiction, victims to escape domestic violence, spiritual guidance to troubled youth, as well as families in financial and emotional distress. Mother Campbell was an adamant believer of God’s ability to heal wounds and reform lives. Without government or state assistance, Mother Campbell supported the â€œBrothers Keepers Missionâ€ working nights as a registered nurse, while simultaneously running the mission 24 hours a day, 7 days every week. Her active contribution to the community, ministering to local jails, her support of mothers and grandmothers of homicide victims, sheltering the homeless community and her consistent involvement in protesting for political responsibility was a relentless effort for over 20 years and continues to be an inspirational blessing to us all.
