Who We Are

Central Mississippi, Inc. (CMI) was established in 1965 as a 501©3 non-profit organization that provides assistance to low-income families and individuals in meeting their basic living needs. CMI operates in a seven-county area, which includes Attala, Carroll, Grenada, Holmes, Leflore, Montgomery, and Yalobusha, and maintains its central office in Winona, Mississippi. We are a nonprofit organization that seeks to help out the community in various ways possible.

Our Team

These are the people behind the organization. Without their support and knowledge, Central Mississippi, Inc. and all its programs would not be possible.
