The tour moves on to the state of Mississippi. Southern Christian Services For Children And Youth in Jackson received the dollar today 🙂
P.A.L.S. (Preparing Adolescents for Living Successfully) assists homeless adolescent males and females, including teen parents and their children with a comprehensive array of services delivered through community outreach, residential care, and after care. P.A.L.S. staff reach out to young people who are literally living on the streets and work to stabilize them.
Homeless youth ages 16-21 may be served in the Jackson based P.A.L.S. residential program which offers counseling, education, life skills training, health care, opportunities for spiritual growth, recreation and community involvement. Youth can live in the group home for up to two years while working on their goals. After care services are provided.
The goal of the P.A.L.S. program is to prepare young people to transition successfully to independent living.
