Our Research

Research has shown that text and instant messaging is an effective mode to provide informational support to vulnerable groups, such as teenagers, in moments of particular worry. The text stories we release are based on the real-life experiences of our clients and data collected from our case management team. They are aimed to reveal true stories through text conversations, and also include the thoughts, or true intentions, of those who may seek to place young people in danger. These thoughts are those that are typically unknown and leave our young people with the inability to foresee harmful situations.
