Our Mission

Supporting the only Children’s Hospital in Mississippi

Friends of Children’s Hospital supports the only hospital in Mississippi dedicated solely to caring for kids. Children’s of Mississippi is the flagship of the statewide health system. Friends was founded in 1989 by a group of dedicated volunteers from around the state to fundraise, build awareness and encourage volunteerism for the children’s hospital.

Our mission is to elevate the healthcare experience for children in Mississippi to create HOPE, SMILES and a place where patients can be kids.
