Palmer Home for Children is a ministry to children in need; children who are growing up as social orphans without the nurture and support of a loving family; children who need a place to be and to become.
Palmer, for more than 100 years, has provided a stable, Christ-centered home life built on loving one-to-one relationships. Founded in 1895 by Presbyterians and other concerned friends, Palmer remains committed to helping children achieve their full God-given potential, however scarred or shattered their family background.
Palmer Home for Children is recognized as a charitable, not-for-profit corporation under Mississippi law. We are also recognized as a 501(c)(3) public charity under federal law.
