Neighborhood News Service Milwaukee

June 9, 2014
Andrea Waxman of Neighborhood News Service Milwaukee did a wonderful story about Lissy’s Place entitled Young Women Find Safety, Support, Skills at Lissy’s Place.

“Last December, Lacherita Alexander was living with her aunt when the aunt’s intoxicated boyfriend pulled out a gun and threatened to kill her. Just 17, Alexander had long suffered from depression and had no safe place to live.

That incident sparked her reconnection with Wraparound Milwaukee, a program that provides mental health services for children with serious emotional, behavioral and mental health needs, and their families. Alexander’s care team helped her get into Lissy’s Place, a transitional home for young women.”   Read the full article and see the videos here.

Alexander said the warm welcome she got from the Lissy’s Place’s staff raised her hopes that “this might be the place that will bring me out a little more, make me a little happier, keep me from being so depressed.”

Naiyah Secession, another homeless teen, started her life in foster care, was adopted at age 9 and then forced out of her adoptive home at 14.
