My Home My Mission

Global Health Equity Foundation (GHEF) is concerned about how gentrification and the eviction crisis in the Bay Area may create inequities in health among the affected population. Created by GHEF in collaboration with community partners, My Home My Mission helps youth in grades 9 through 12 cope with growing problems of displacement; and with psychological trauma related to gentrification that is accompanied by a surge in evictions in the San Francisco Bay Area.

My Home My Mission provides a safe space for weekly sessions that help students release displacement tensions through the creation of art. The project assists participants in liberating themselves from realities that could potentially develop into long-term health and psychological problems.

Global Health Equity Foundation is a philanthropic organization dedicated to research, advocacy and capacity building. The foundation’s integrated approach raises awareness about inequities in health, and also provides practical guidelines for making improvements in global health equity.

Nucleus is an example of the art projects created for My Home, My Mission. It explores the concept of the body as an initial site of belonging and of the feeling of being at home. Nucleus is an interpretation of My Home My Mission by artist Nathalie Brilliant, and will premiere at the event. InSpace Curatorial curates Nucleus.

Please join us and learn more about this innovative endeavor to improve health equity for youth in our community.
