Immediate Needs

Become A Mentor

These powerful, rewarding relationships bring hope for children in our care, impacting their lives for the better. As a mentor, you are an extended network of support for the child—sharing in birthday parties, holidays and church activities, attending events like ball games and recitals, teaching a teen to drive and so much more.

Respite Care

Make an impact in the lives of both children and houseparents! Being a Respite Caregiver means providing short-term care (1–3 nights) for children at Palmer Home. Respite Caregivers commit to serving once a month or every other month to ensure they are building relationships with the children they care for and the caregivers they support.

Grounds Care

Our campus, outside Hernando, Mississippi, sits on a sprawling 150 acres. Maintaining a clean campus is important to us, and it takes many people to make that possible! Care includes landscaping and maintaining seasonal flower beds.

Youth Employment

Got a part-time job opening or internship available at your business? Consider one of the teenagers in Palmer Home’s care for your team.
