EDUCATION & CAREERS

We work for Mississippi women at every stage of life, regardless of age. Our two-generation approach starts with quality childcare and early education opportunities, and continues through graduation and career training. We award hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants to local community colleges and early education programs to broaden access to opportunity and increase self-sufficiency.
