While Mississippi Children’s Home Services was founded for adoption purposes in 1912, we are more determined than ever to see every child thrive. Last year, Mississippi Children’s Home Services served over 18,000 Mississippians by providing the most comprehensive array of children’s behavioral health, social, and educational services statewide.
