OUR BRANCHES

EDUCATION, ADVOCACY & OUTREACH

HEALTH ADVOCACY
& SERVICE

Diseases like West Nile virus and other arboviruses do not discriminate; they affect people of all walks of life. We provide outreach and resources to families and communities affected by disease.

NATURAL DISASTER
RESPONSE

Natural disasters like hurricanes and tornadoes do not choose or target whom they devastate. We provide rapid response for communities affected by natural disasters.

MENTAL HEALTH
AWARENESS & SUPPORT

Mental health issues like PTSD, depression, anxiety, and more affect all ages, races, and creeds. We are the neighbors helping neighbors who want to shine light upon and raise support for those impacted by mental illness.

WHO WE ARE

Like the mighty longleaf pine, Mississippi has strong roots in heritage and hospitality. Throughout our history, these roots have helped our people withstand the strong winds of disaster, the devastation of disease, and the droughts of hardship. Through every challenge, we stand strong.

Mississippi United is a grassroots effort that aims to improve health, humanity, and quality of life in our great state. We are neighbors helping neighbors.

Just like the many colors of our coastal landscapes and delta sunsets, so are the many faces of need in Mississippi. Mississippi United encourages citizens to come together to create real, organic change. When we unify, we branch out to create lasting stability, withstand every storm, and welcome a brighter tomorrow.

OUR MISSION

Mississippi United models to the nation how everyday people can and should help each other face whatever strikes their communities. Through education, advocacy and outreach, we are a grassroots effort of neighbors helping neighbors in health and humanity.
