Mission and Vision
Meet The M.E.C.A. Project Team
The Origin of The M.E.C.A. Project
The Holts partnered with Amber Trueblood, a licensed mental health practitioner, entrepreneur, and mother of four. Over the following weeks, the vision and strategy of the non-profit began to crystallize. Kristi and Amber reached out to their networks and quickly found that the emotional health of teens affected even more families than they imagined. The need is vast and deep. Teens need real resources beyond what the medical and educational systems currently provide.
Amber and Kristi gathered a team of teens and young adults to get their input on critical decisions… including the name of the non-profit. The teens wanted the name to convey a feeling of safety, solidarity, and gathering. They loved words like “oasis” and “haven.” From there, the M.E.C.A. project was born. A safe space where teens can thrive Mentally and Emotionally through Conscious Awareness.
