Teen Health Mississippi Creates Emergency Relief Fund
In light of COVID-19 and the financial problems the pandemic is causing Mississippians, Teen Health Mississippi (THMS) has created an emergency relief program for THMS youth partners and Mississippi teens.
The Emergency Relief Fund Program was established to support the urgent needs of financially disadvantaged Teen Health Mississippi youth partners and young people ages 13 to 19 from across the state impacted by COVID-19. Funds are intended for young people who demonstrate an immediate need for interim housing, nutritional stipends, baby care items for expectant and parenting teens, transportation, medical care/supplies, and school supplies.
Funding for the Emergency Relief Fund Program is contingent upon demonstrated need and the availability of funds. We anticipate a large volume of applicants and cannot guarantee that all requests will be met.
To be considered for the Emergency Relief Fund Program, please submit an application. Applications can be submitted by using one of the following methods:
- Google Form attached here, or
- By video/audio submission answering the questions on the application.
If you have any questions regarding applying for relief funding, please email email@example.com or call Justin Lofton at 601-709-9418.
Teen Health Mississippi is a nonprofit organization who seeks to ensure that all young people in Mississippi has access to high-quality sex education and youth-friendly healthcare. The organization partners with young people and empowers them and their communities through trainings, capacity building, advocacy training, and connecting them to resources to help them make informed decisions. We know that when young people have the resources they need, everyone benefits.
