Lower Mississippi Delta Service Corps Charity Profile
The mission of the Lower Mississippi Delta Service Corps, Inc.(DSC), a tri-state, non-profit organization, is to create positive change across the Delta. Because the region’s pervasive poverty is multi-generational, the program devotes 80% of its resources toward needs of children, youth and their families. Service projects address education, health, and housing needs.
We “get things done” by: tutoring children and youth in school; providing after-school enrichment; teaching family literacy, transitioning families from substandard housing conditions; increasing the use of computer technology in the classroom; teaching parenting skills; teaching pregnancy prevention; providing food and shelter to families; and conducting health programs for the elderly.
Headquarters operation moved from Mississippi, to Louisiana, to Arkansas until a Tri-State Headquarters was established in Greenville, Mississippi in l995 and later moved to Cleveland in l998.
