Mississippi’s Voice for Children and Families

Not all ailments are physical. The reality is that one in five children suffers from a behavioral health challenge. One child in 54 is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. More than 1.3 million teenagers struggle with substance abuse and dependence, and nearly 1 million children fall victim to abuse and neglect each year. Confronted with these statistics, children and families in Mississippi need a proven leader with a record of success.
