Welcome to the MISSSEY blog!

This is a space where we share what we’ve been working on and feature powerful stories from our partners, the youth we serve, and some of YOU! From the findings of our latest research and announcements about what we have coming up to profiles of change-makers, this is the place to be, and we’re so glad you’re here.

You know best what kinds of support have helped you heal and thrive. Our job is to listen, provide resources, and uplift survivor’s voices and leadership. Please reach out if you would like to submit a story for this blog.
