Mississippi Homemaker Volunteers
The mission of Mississippi Homemaker Volunteers, Inc. (MHV) is to strengthen families through education and community involvement.
Anyone interested in improving family and community life may form a Mississippi Homemaker Volunteers club. MHV clubs usually have 10 to 20 members who participate in leader training classes, take part in public policy education, and serve as community volunteer leaders. Members may participate in county, area, and state programs.
MHV clubs may be traditional young family (under 35) couples, special interest, lunch and learn, senior citizens, newly retired, and career. Mail box membership is offered for those who want to receive training and educational materials but don't have time to join a traditional club.
If you are interested in joining a Mississippi Homemaker Volunteers club, contact your local county Extension office.
Group finds enrichment in sharing and learning skills and serving the community
What started as a few ladies meeting together to socialize and learn new skills and refresh familiar ones grew into a new Mississippi Homemaker Volunteer club.
Back in 1991 when she retired, Prentiss County resident Sue K. Honeycutt had figured out that connecting with people in the community leads to great outcomes, both for the giver and the receiver.
When she came to her first Mississippi Homemaker Volunteers meeting in 1968, Rae Clarke accompanied her aunt, Versie Manning, who insisted Clarke come to the Thanksgiving party.
When Julia Bailey returned to her native DeKalb in 1992, she wanted to get involved in her community.
