Gulfport, Mississippi, is a fantastic place to settle down. Mississippi's second largest city is situated right on the beautiful Gulf Of Mexico, and offers numerous beaches and other attractions. Instill a love of wildlife and the great outdoors in your family at the Clower-Thronton Nature Area. Or, for a taste of Old South history, fathers will love taking the kids to the Beauvoir-Jefferson Davis Home and Presidential Library.1 For casual fun, take the older kids out to Skeeter's to play some pool. And mothers will enjoy taking the girls to the Gulfport Centennial Museum. Everyone will have an incredible time on a Ship Island Excursion. In addition to the cruise and swimming opportunities, you'll be treated to shellfishing, dolphin viewing, and fort tours. And if your family enjoys a good flick once in a while, you won't be disappointed with the Cinemark 16. Whether you want to lie out on the beach or enjoy the amenities of the city, Gulfport is for you.

Families First for Mississippi promotes healthy families through various educational programs.

Children who have a mental illness or developmental disability can receive services from Youth Villages. Their Mississippi Youth Programs Around the Clock provide home-based and school-based programs to meet each child's specific needs. Support groups provide a forum for children to work through emotional and psychological difficulties they encounter at home or in school. Tutoring services ensure children can succeed with their studies, while vocational services get them thinking about a future career path. Family members and other caregivers can also get respite services so they can have some time away from tending to their child's mental health needs. Contact Youth Villages at 228-354-9700 to learn more.3

Family Services and Assistance Programs

Several local agencies offer assistance programs to families who are struggling due to financial hardship, physical or emotional trauma, or poor family functioning. The Harrison County Department of Human Services meets many of these needs through programs that provide prevention education so families don't fall into a cycle of abuse, neglect, or poverty. Other programs focus on promoting two-parent families to provide financial and emotional stability for young children. The department also conducts investigations into allegations of domestic violence and takes proper measures to ensure families are protected.4 The Salvation Army of the Mississippi Gulf Coast is another agency dedicated to improving the lives of local families. Their educational programs seek to equip families with the tools they need to have a safe, healthy, and stable home. Courses are available that focus on development of cooking skills, monthly budgeting, and goal setting. Practical assistance, such as funding to pay for utilities, bus passes, and back-to-school supplies, ease the stressors and pressures of financial hardship. To inquire about these programs, call the Salvation Army at 228-868-1188.5
