Mississippi transitional housing programs.

Mississippi families facing an eviction or the currently homeless can receive help from emergency shelters and transitional programs. Non-profits, churches, and government agencies coordinate services to assist residents across the state. As part of this process, long term solutions will be provided, including assistance in finding and paying for a permanent home.

The demand for affordable and safe housing in Mississippi is very high, so many agencies will have a waiting list for their transitional housing programs. Some centers also focus on single parents, veterans, or the youth. However hundreds of people benefit from these resources every month, and if a location can’t meet your needs they may provide referrals.

As part of your stay in a center, individuals will be able to receive case management, information on employment programs, meals, and financial aid. Also get information on long term, low income housing units that operate in Mississippi.
