    Hello there! I was there this past Monday. I wish to sponsor a girl, in the Hope House. I have a burden for those with varied challenges or issues, if I may. Please contact me and let me know what I need to do, to fulfill this hope and burden of my heart. I love the mansion. We have supported this work thru our Church for 46 years. I’m so thankful for the Mansion and for the hope it gives to those that are most in need.

    Thanks.
    Love,
    Shirley Wills

        I have not heard from anyone, I didn’t know why, so I just decided to wait. Please give me more information on what it would cost for me to do so & am I able to talk to them via email? I’ve never done this before but I am truly interested.

        Sincere thanks!

          You can sponsor a child for as little as $15.00 per month…or more, of course. Call our Tupelo Children’s Mansion at 662-842-6982, and ask for the Sponsor Relations Dept. Tell the receptionist that you are interested in sponsoring a child. Thanks again.
