About Our Odyssey:    

Our Odyssey is a non-profit organization, created in June 2019 by young adults who spent years searching for empowerment, belonging, inclusivity, connection, and hope. Our mission was built on these values to drive the approach in providing this unmet need to young adults in the rare and chronic communities. Today, Our Odyssey creates a space for members to connect, learn, and build a network of social and emotional support through in-person and virtual meetups. The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the importance of this social and emotional support, and we have grown faster than ever over the past year.
