Mississippi Society for Disabilities MSD
The mission of Mississippi Society For Disabilities (MSD) is to provide a broad spectrum of programs and services to meet the needs of Mississippi children and adults with disabilities, thus enabling them to achieve maximum independence and gain the greatest possible quality of life. For half a century, the staff and volunteers of Mississippi Society for Disabilities have helped fellow Mississippians live gracefully and successfully with disabilities. Some disabilities are caused by birth defects, while many others are the result of injury, disease or aging. Though disabilities usually cannot be cured, MSD provides support to prevent them from encroaching on quality of life. MSD has served thousands of Mississippi children and adults living with disabilities since 1959. We are a 501 (c) 3 statewide non-profit organization and a registered charity with the Mississippi Secretary of State. To support our unique programs and services, we depend on funding from donations from individuals and corporations, grants from foundations, and proceeds from special fund raising events. MSD headquarters are located at 500-G East Woodrow Wilson Drive, Jackson, Mississippi. In addition to our administrative and program offices, The Mississippi Client Assistance Program and the MSD K.I.D.S. Clinic operate from this location.
