We at Volunteer Mississippi are very pleased and excited to be a part of the growth and success of the Mississippi Hub Network and are committed to continue supporting its great work in communities across Mississippi.
Thanks to the hard work of our Hub Directors, support of their host organizations, and close partnership with the MS Alliance of Nonprofits and Philanthropy, the Hubs have already played a vital role in building nonprofit capacity, connecting citizens to community needs, and building disaster-resilient communities.
In just three years we have established 8 regional Hubs with service areas covering 69 out of 82 Mississippi counties. Collectively our Hub Network has served and built partnerships with nearly 1,300 nonprofit organizations. More and more,
Mississippians are looking to their local Hubs to learn about local needs and how they can get involved.
As a result, Hubs have steadily increased volunteerism in their communities – from accounting for 10,400 volunteer engagements at the end of year one to 37,920 in the first 9 months of year 3. Hubs have recognized thousands of Mississippians for their selfless service, connected nonprofits to training and resources, and connected people and resources to communities in the aftermath of disaster.
