Welcome to the new MCCJ site


We are so glad you are here! It is an exciting moment in history for the state of child welfare in Mississippi and we want you to be a part of it.

This site is designed as a one-stop-shop for the Mississippi Commission on Children's Justice – a commission that coordinates all three branches of the state's government in order to identify and promote ways to improve the child welfare system. Whether you are a parent, judge, attorney, or MCCJ stakeholder, we hope you will be able to find helpful information throughout this site.
