First Call Gives Help Online

There's now a web site available to Mississippi residents looking for almost any type of help. It's called "First Call MS." It's a database of family support organizations in all 82 Mississippi counties.

The web site was created by members of this years class of "Leadership Mississippi."

Kimberly Nastasi Crim from Leadership Mississippi said, "we found there are a lot of resources and a lot of people that want help, but don't know about each other. So we figured out the best thing to do is create a database people could access for free. And people on the database could be listed for free."

FirstCallMS contains listings for 574 organizations.
