Mississippi Families for Kids


Mississippi Families for Kids

Full Description


Top priority is given to those children who are presently in the adoption and foster care system. The second priority is given to those families who are at risk of coming into the child welfare system. We especially cater to older children, sibling groups, and children with special needs as well as those who have been abused, neglected, or abandoned.

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.
