In the Know

Manna Awarded Yet Another Gift

Manna Ministries was awarded a $350,000 grant from the U.S. Dept of HHS-Administration for Children and Families in support our “ Family Advocacy Program”. The Family Advocacy program is a program designed to prevent the incidence of child maltreatment and unnecessary removal of children from their home setting to foster care.  The approach of early identification of families at risk, and early intervention has proven to be a successful model for reducing the incidence of child maltreatment due to lack of access to basic necessities of life. By stabilizing the family unit early on, the family has a greater chance of being able to sustain themselves long term and reaching their full potential both individually and as a family.  Reducing the incidence of childhood trauma and division of the family unit by addressing the source of neglect by early intervention works and will change the landscape of Mississippi over time in building stronger families.  We are grateful to Dept. of HHS for their support of our program.

Funding for Expansion

Manna Medical Clinic is honored to be awarded a $216,000 grant from HRSA-Congressional Funding for expansion of its Dental Clinic.  This funding will provide for expansion of dental clinic in order to provide additional dental services to our patients.  Additional space will allow ample room for expanded services of dental hygiene services i.e. cleanings, fillings, and dentures.  Also included in the expansion will be an education room which is an integral part of what Manna Dental Clinic offers to its patients, dental and hygiene education.

Family Advocacy is our Passion

We are grateful to Lower Pearl River Valley Foundation for their support of the Family Advocacy Program in helping so many families of Pearl River County. The Family Advocacy Program was created to connect families to available resources within the community when removal of children from the home is due to neglect. The focus of the Family Advocacy Program is to promote safe stable, self-sufficient families. By identifying families at risk early on, intervention can be staged and implemented in order to reduce childhood trauma and the division of the family unit by addressing the source of the neglect.

Risk factors include: Poverty And Struggles To Meet Basic Needs, Parental/Guardian Drug Abuse, Inadequate Housing, Caretaker Inability to Cope, Mental Health Challenges, Low Financial Literacy
