Since 1965, Community Action of South Mississippi has made a constant effort to improve the quality of life for members in the Jackson County area of Mississippi. We provide social services, mainly to Jackson County residents, that includes comprehensive childcare development and it continues through senior citizen activities.
With each coming year we strive to improve our existing programs while working to implement new programs to better serve our community. Our success is due largely to partnerships with our elected officials, local businesses, non-profits, education and health care systems, and all of the residents that make this possible.
Provide quality services that empowers the community and fosters independence.
Our vision is to be the standard of excellence in developing and delivering quality, responsive services.
Community Action Agencies are governed by a Board of Directors. The Board consists of a representative of low-income individuals and families in the area served; an elected public official (or their representative); and members of business, industry, labor, religious, law enforcement, education, or other major groups and interests in the community served.
