At MISSSEY, we believe in and have witnessed the power, brilliance, and resiliency of young people. We remain intensely committed to our mission and look forward to continuing to provide support to girls 11-24 through our intensive case management, one to one mentoring, and daily drop in center. These past 6 months we’ve been abuzz with re-energized commitment, growth, and progress. We welcomed our new Executive Director and focused energy on building our leadership team and piloting important programs. We successfully developed and delivered a 40-hour Human Trafficking Training curriculum, partnered with Oakland Unified School District to begin prevention education, and are currently working in partnership with AnnieCannons to pilot a program that will connect MISSSEY girls to tech training and job opportunities.


Together, we have been providing safe spaces, cultivating healthy relationships, and manifesting hope with girls since 2007. This July, we will celebrate our 10 year anniversary! Turning 10 is an important milestone and an opportunity to reflect on the amazing work we’ve done and the critical work that lies ahead. MISSSEY started small and has grown into an organization of 15 committed women providing diverse opportunities to survivors. As we turn 10, we are focused on ensuring increased organizational strength and ongoing longevity. Building capital and increasing individual support is a critical next step in our journey. Fundraising is a necessary reality for nonprofits and this year, we are committed to bringing in the funds needed to provide greater stability to the organization. Our mission is critical and we have a responsibility to continue our important work with girls.


We can only do this with your help. As a small grassroots nonprofit, MISSSEY exists, succeeds, and expands with and because of your support.

Below, we’ve outlined our fundraising goal for the year. We are wholeheartedly grateful for support at all levels. Once you select your giving option below, click “Donate Now” to be taken to our secure Paypal page.
