The Taste of DeSoto, a fund managed through the Community Foundation of Northwest Mississippi, recently donated $10,000 to the Mississippi Children’s Home Services. The mission is to improve the lives of children and families by providing a continuum of compassionate, measureable and effective behavioral health and social services. In 2012, Mississippi Children’s Home Services provided direct treatment/prevention services for individuals in 76 of the 82 counties in Mississippi, and served over 6,000 children and families.
