Family First Initiative Launch meeting

Jackson County took yet another step in the right direction with the Family First Initiative Meeting at the MGCCC Jackson County campus.

The Family First Initiative is co-chaired by First Lady Deborah Bryant with a purpose to bring community leaders together to put forth resources to aid Jackson County families.

Jackson County locals and leaders went around the room voicing their opinions on strengths, weaknesses, and threats within the community.

The goal of the program is to coordinate efforts to help families and children have better living conditions so locals will have a better Mississippi.  Youth Court Judge Sharon Sigalas said, “I have worked hard to make sure that I strive to be a better me so that Mississippi is better with me in it. So, that’s our goal, to make everybody proud to be a citizen of Mississippi. If we are all proud of our self, we are going to be a better Mississippi.”

The organization will soon be able to log into an app and list services and items they can provide for local families.
