One of the Oldest and Continuously Operated Child-caring Facilities in United States is located in Natchez, Mississippi

Natchez Children's Home Services is the oldest child-caring agency in Mississippi, and among one of the oldest continuously operated facilities in the United States.  It is located in Adams County but offers its services to the Franklin County Area. 

Natchez Children's Home Services is primarily funded by donations from individuals, churches, businesses, foundations, bequests, special events, gifts in-kind, proceeds from their Thrift Shop and donated services and goods.

Everything needed to operate a private residence is needed at  Natchez Children's Home Services - just in larger quantities!  In addition to the usual household items necessary for their Day Treatment Program (cleaning supplies, bathroom supplies, classroom materials, etc.) they help foster parents in many ways.  School supplies, clothing, food items, personal supplies, linens and of course Christmas and Birthday presents are all available to the foster parents.
