Central Mississippi, Inc. participated in various community outreach activities, including a Community Transportation Day, Conflict Resolution Workshop, Breast Cancer Awareness Walk, Donuts and Coffee with the Community, and a Christmas Parade. The activities are within the seven-county service area and include the community (clients, elected public officials, and community advocates).
Community Transportation Day
Central Mississippi, Inc. applied for and received a transportation grant for three of our counties: Carroll, Grenada, and Montgomery. The grant will allow the agency to provide transportation to eligible elderly, disabled, and disenfranchised clients at a reduced or no cost.
Domestic Violence Workshop
Domestic Violence affects everyone in one way or another. You or someone you know could be the recipient of this issue. It is crucial that everyone is aware of how to seek assistance, and more importantly, how to defend themselves. This class was open to staff and the community and was a very enlightening experience.
Breast Cancer Awareness
Cancer is a deadly disease and it affects us all. CMI recognizes that and attempts to assist in any area.
Donuts and Coffee with the Community
The agency enjoyed talking and drinking cocoa with the clients and the rest of the community. The clients discussed issues and were able to ask questions concerning the services the agency provides. Open communication is key to the sustainability of any successful organization.
The agency participated in the Christmas parades in Winona, Mississippi, and Vaiden, Mississippi.
