A Short History of Catherine’s Cause


Catherine’s Cause is an anti drunk driving organization. Catherine’s Cause was established after MADD re-organized and left Carroll County, Md.  The founders Mrs. Cynthia M. Mullikin and Capt Philip W. Mullikin had been MADD volunteers.  There are about 15 active volunteers for Catherine’s Cause.  They range from Police Officers, and Paramedics to Grandparents.  The one common factor is that they are all parents 

with a concern for the lives of others.  DUI/DWI drivers who are court ordered to attend a Catherine’s Cause Forum fund CC.  Monies collected through the Forums are given back to the community in grants to various organizations such as Md.
