Mississippi Families for Kids was initiated to implement child focused, solution based, permanency-planning programs for the State of Mississippi. Top priority is given to those children who are presently in the foster care system. The agency also serves those families who are at risk of coming into the child welfare system. Our mission is to ensure the permanency and well-being of children and families through educational development, special training and community based services.
We seek to improve the conditions for these families and children through major improvements in the adoption and foster care system, including policy changes. We specialize in services to older children, sibling groups, and children with special needs as well as those who have been abused, neglected, or abandoned.
