In 2015, Back Bay Mission received an Emergency Solutions Grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development. This grant helps us provide immediate housing assistance to very low-income families. Sometimes, this means homelessness prevention. Sometimes this means rehousing someone who has become homeless.

How You Can Help

When you make a gift to Back Bay Mission, you make sure that people have a home. While this grant makes sure that we can prevent homelessness and rehouse some very low-income families, there are many more people in need who cannot be served through this grant.

You can make a difference by giving to our emergency assistance program. Your gifts, which have far fewer restrictions than a federal grant, can serve even more people.

You can make your gift easily and securely right on this website.

You can also mail your gift to Back Bay Mission, PO Box 288, Biloxi, Mississippi 39533.
