Steve Dacey is the Men’s Empowerment Clinician for the Make It Happen program. He works with the rest of the Make It Happen team to provide mentorship, intensive case management, clinical interventions, and supportive workshops to young men of color who have been overexposed to violence in their communities. Through provision of individual and group counseling, Steve hopes to support the program’s participants in processing the impact that trauma has had on their lives. He also assists them in building awareness of the strength and resiliency that they already possess, and in analyzing the overlapping systems of oppression within which their individual stories are located. He holds a Master’s of Social Work from Hunter College and is a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) in the state of New York.
