Canopy’s Mission

Canopy Children’s Solution’s mission is to help children thrive and families overcome extraordinary challenges by providing a continuum of behavioral health, educational, and social service solutions.

Our Core Values

Our Four Core Values define our day-to-day actions and decision-making at every level in our organization.


The voice of our children and families always comes first.

The voice of our children and families is the starting place for everything we do. Our family-driven, youth-guided services build upon the unique strengths and culture of each family. Canopy commits to a full partnership with those entrusted to our care.

Relationships matter and our differences make us stronger.

We understand the centrality of relationships in our work. We strive to form relationships throughout, within, and beyond the organization that will help us create change. From the board room to the classroom (and at all levels in between), relationships are the building blocks of our success! Through the power of positive relationships, every child can be a success story.

We take great joy in service to others.

The heartbeat of our work is selflessly working for a cause greater than ourselves. Finding joy in meeting others’ needs allows our staff to move beyond themselves while they serve, encourage, and provide hope to children and families during difficult times.

Our families and our communities deserve our very best.

Finally, for over 100 years, we have endeavored to deliver care of the highest quality. Therefore, we have been, and continue to be, at the forefront of emerging best practices and state-of-the-art service delivery. As stewards of a century of progress, we work very hard at meeting the needs of the current generation of Mississippians. Nevertheless, we can and must get better – our families and communities deserve it.
