WORKING TOGETHER TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

The families of our east Biloxi neighborhood face trials and hardships every day. They struggle with limited opportunities for education and careers. Most families served by Moore Community House are headed by single mothers who are either in school or working low-wage jobs. That’s why we focus not only on directly aiding those in need, especially children, but also on improving the policies and systems designed to care for them.

 

Moore Community House programs promote community development and community solutions for neighborhood problems and provide opportunities for personal growth. Since 1924, we have sought to assist our neighbors every step of the way, from parenting education before birth and preschool services for children to education opportunities and employment assistance for low-income women. Serving with optimism and determination, we are committed to the well-being and success of our families and their children

WORKFORCE TRAINING & SUPPORT

Faced with a reality in which women make up half of the state's workforce but 72% of minimum wage workers, Moore Women in Construction seeks to help our students explore new carreer paths. Mississippi companies need middle skilled workers, particularly in advanced manufacturing, the industry that was the largest job creator in 2014.
