About the Provider

Description: Mississippi Action For Progress, Inc. represents a cross-section of Mississippians working for and with disadvantaged children and their families to ensure a brighter tomorrow for the state and nation. MAP believes that every child deserves a head start in life -- an equal opportunity to develop character, talent, mind, body and personality.

We further believe that we are to prepare children to function in our society by providing life experiences. As America's greatest resource, children will ultimately determine the destiny of our country. All children have a unique contribution to make to society. MAP is dedicated to maximizing the disadvantaged child's potential for contributing.

The American dream of freedom, justice and equal opportunity for all is being brought nearer to reality in Mississippi as dedicated MAP personnel interact with other agencies to accomplish this goal.
