Executive Director

Back Bay Mission

Back Bay Mission has a simple mission: to strengthen neighborhoods, seek justice, and transform lives. We strengthen neighborhoods through ministries like our education and empowerment programs and our housing rehabilitation program. These vital ministries help the people we serve to be a part of and build their communities on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. As volunteers take what they learn at Back Bay Mission home, they have the opportunity to strengthen their own neighborhoods. We seek justice by helping the people we serve become more involved in their communities, educating people about the realities of poverty, and advocating on behalf of marginalized people in our community. All of our programs transform lives. Whether helping a homeowner keep their home, mentoring a single mother as she plans her path out of poverty, or working with an intern considering a career in social work, Back Bay Mission makes the lives of the people we serve better.
