The Children’s Foundation of Mississippi works to…

Shape Systems.

Build more effective and more intentional systems by advocating for better policies, and by convening policymakers, agencies, organizations, and communities to work on systems-level problems.

Foster Collaboration.

Create a blueprint for child well-being in Mississippi that articulates what our state can do to address important children’s issues, bring stakeholders together to implement the plan, and provide updates on the progress.

Do Big Things.

We will take on Signature Initiatives – multi-year strategic projects that have the potential for major impact.

Deliver Data.

Through a variety of resources — such as Mississippi KIDS COUNT — we will monitor and report the critical indicators of our state’s child well-being that advocates and decisionmakers need to be informed.
