Our Mission


"To provide opportunities for education and employment and the opportunity for everyone to live in decency and dignity."



Mid-State Opportunity, Inc.  was chartered as a private non-profit Community Action Agency in 1965 as a result of the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964.  Our goals are to provide opportunities for low-income people to work, receive education and training and the opportunity to live in decency and dignity.  We offer case management services and a variety of programs to help us achieve these goals.


Mid-State operates programs in six northwest Mississippi counties including DeSoto, Panola, Quitman, Tallahatchie, Tate and Tunica.


Mid-State’s Board of Directors is made of up of 18 members representing the poor sector, the private sector and the public sector.  All counties are equally represented on the governing Board.
