Help Support MISSSEY
MISSSEY is driven by the knowledge that the work we do in the community is for the community and those who live in it. We are dedicated to doing our part in creating communities where all members can be healthy, vibrant, and who they want to be. We know we cannot do this alone.
As a community–based organization we feel it is important to have the support of the community. Just as you rely on us, we rely on you. We are driven by the lives we touch and those that reach out to touch ours. There are several ways you can directly support survivors, our services to them and the rising movement for decriminalization of CSEC and support for CSEC as domestic victims of human trafficking.
Thank you for being a part of this movement!

The MISSSEY Community Collective
The MISSSEY Community Collective (MCC) is a crucial body of community members responding to the commercial sexual exploitation of our children. We need people like you to donate time, energy, and experience in a variety of areas, including talking to family, friends, neighbors and policy makers about the commercial sexual exploitation of children; raising awareness in broader communities through public speaking; supporting client services and organizational development through in-kind donations; and developing skills to provide CSEC-specific Crisis Response.
Together, with your help we will be able to better assist the youth we serve directly and also serve as a model across the United States towards abolishing this atrocity. A volunteer for MISSSEY once said that "Although it’s sad that there is a need to protect and heal; there’s no greater reward than helping build the love, esteem and a safe place in general for a child."
We appreciate your interest and look forward to you working with the MISSSEY Community Collective.
