COVINGTON COUNTY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE: Connecting the dots- Players in massive welfare embezzlement case got millions from taxpayers, but helped few


Covington County Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on Feb. 8.

A downtown Jackson resource center funded by millions of state welfare dollars was quiet Wednesday morning. Blue bins labeled “fresh produce” in a mock farmers market sat empty. Monitors in the computer lab were black and toys in the children’s playroom sat neatly on their shelves.

Families First for Mississippi’s recently-opened State Street center, run by the nonprofit Mississippi Community Education Center, promises to lift families out of poverty. Human Services has granted the nonprofit approximately $53 million since the beginning of fiscal year 2018 reportedly to do just that, state expenditures show.
