"Turning the Curve" for Mississippi's Children
A healthy start for children establishes a strong foundation for lifelong learning and contributions to our community. For Mississippi to reach its potential, we must make sure our state’s children reach theirs. When we make sure that children get off to a strong start, we’re setting the stage for our communities to realize new possibilities. By adding focus, promoting strategic thinking, and creating more intentional alliances, together we can “turn the curve” and make a major difference in outcomes.
The Children’s Foundation of Mississippi is an independent operating foundation focused on improving the policies and systems that affect the well-being of children in our state. We were founded in 2019 to serve as a convener, facilitator, advocate, and catalyst for positive change for Mississippi’s children.
