Mississippi Children's Home Services

Tuesday night I had the pleasure of attending one of Mississippi Children's Home Services' birthday parties for the resident kids. I recently wrote an article on their new campus that is being built. MCHS reaches out to kids who have psychiatric and behavioral problems and helps transition them back into a normal school and home environment.

Just being around these kids made me realize how the majority of us have no idea what's going on all around us. I am so blessed to have been brought up in a home where my parents took care of and supported me. It sure made me realize how stupid most of my so-called problems are. These are kids that are just hungry for someone to care and they are kids who can't help what situations they were born into or brought into. It was such a relief to see how the staff and volunteers of MCHS reach out and nurture these kids. Thank God for people like these. Visit to learn more about their work.
