The Bottom Line for Kids Benefit provides an opportunity for community leaders and patrons to spread the word to help Southern Christian Services for Children and Youth, Inc. provide hope and a brighter future for Mississippi’s most vulnerable children and youth.


Southern Christian Services for Children and Youth, Inc. serves children, youth, and families throughout Mississippi through several programs. These programs include adoption and foster care for children and youth with special needs, transitional living services for homeless youth, state-wide counseling services to children and youth suffering with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, group home care for boys and an adolescent human trafficking home who have experienced abuse and neglect. SCSCY also provides evidence-based parenting classes to parents in early substance abuse recovery and to incarcerated parents for community re-entry-all to decrease child neglect and abuse throughout Mississippi and to help victims of abuse and neglect heal. 



This year’s 36th Annual Bottom Line for Kids Benefit Dinner and Auction will have Susan Wellington as the featured artist, premier and live auction items, hands of providence award, and launching of the new video. The highlight of the event will be a heartwarming story told by one of our very own foster family and a story about our PALS Transitional Youth.

The Hands of Providence Award are presented to individuals who demonstrate extraordinary service and commitment to improving the lives of Mississippi's children, youth and families. Providence by definition means, "care, guardianship and control exercised by God". Thus the nominees for this award are those people whose very lives are committed to doing the work of God with children, youth, and families in our communities.
