154 Cottonwood Street
Cary, MS 39054
(888) 668-1256

Services:
We believe God has called us to break the cycle of poverty in the lives of those we serve. Poverty is a destructive lifestyle that sets limits and boundaries on an individual that prevents that individual from reaching their full potential. To break the cycle of poverty, we must build relationships that are based on biblical principles. As we build relationships with individuals, we have an opportunity to share God's truth, trusting that it will lead to healthy choices according to the Word of God. History The story of CCC began in 1971 with Dr. Peter Boelens, a pediatrician with a heart for missions and burden for serving the poor. He had become aware of the significant needs in the southern Mississippi Delta and was led to open a practice in the poorest area of the United States-serving Sharkey and Issaquena counties and areas of the surrounding counties. He knew that the infant mortality rate was the highest in the nation. Still, he followed God's leading to rural Cary, Mississippi on Highway 61. Cary is located 34 miles north of Vicksburg, and eight miles south of Sharkey County seat at Rolling Fork. The original clinic, in a mobile home on Highway 61 was destroyed in a tornado after the first year. A small school building and grounds-abandoned during integration-was available. It was also tornado damaged but was remodeled by volunteers into a very adequate facility. Over the years, programs were added-each based on real needs in the community. The first of these programs were related to medical needs. Eventually, they addressed the needs of the whole person and family. What had started as a clinic, eventually became Cary Christian Center, a ministry with a broad range of services directed at the needs of the South Mississippi Delta.
