Mississippi Children’s Home Services

Jackson, MS 39215 | (601) 352-7784

A voice. An advocate. A supporter. Mississippi Children’s Home Services provides children with safe, loving and permanent homes. That has been the organization’s mission since its formation in 1912. Although the agency has changed and grown in many ways in our 100+ years of service, we remain passionate about finding permanent homes for children and keeping the family unit together. We have served more than 600,000 children and families and continue to find new ways to do so. Since our inception, MCHS has been devoted to finding permanent homes for infants and children. More than 7,000 children have been placed in loving homes by MCHS, and we have led the charge to ensure that Mississippi adoptions take place through a licensed agency that will always have the best interests of the child at heart. Whether you are a birth mother searching for the best place for your child or a family wishing to adopt a child, MCHS is an advocate as you embark on your important journey. We have the experience and the dedication to ensure that the process will be handled legally, compassionately and efficiently. MCHS recognizes the dilemma of a birth mother faced with an unplanned pregnancy. MCHS views a mother’s choice of adoption as an act of selflessness and love. When you place your child with MCHS, you will experience warmth and compassion that surrounds you each step of the way. Prenatal care, adoption choices and counseling services are just a few of the ways we remain attuned to your needs.

Mississippi Families for Kids

Jackson, MS 39206 | (601) 957-7670

Mississippi Families for Kids is a statewide, private 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization with the mission to ensure that every child in foster care and in the child welfare system finds a permanent home. Established in 1994 through a grant from the Kellogg Foundation and incorporated in 1998, Mississippi Families for Kids is funded through individual donations, business contributions, Wendy’s franchisees, the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, and through our annual Children’s Golf Classic. 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 adoption and foster care system. The agency also serves those families who are at risk of coming into the child welfare system. Many of the children we serve are hard to place, such as older children, those with special needs, and those who have been abused, neglected, or abandoned. These children are often moved from foster home to foster home, which leads to a sense of instability and distrust. Children coming from this kind of living situation often develop negative behaviors such as lying and stealing. These children are more likely to drop out of high school than other youth, commit violent crimes, have difficulty finding stable employment, frequently depend on public assistance as adults, and often find themselves homeless.
