In April 1993, a group of concerned citizens [residing in Picayune, MS and its surrounding areas] organized and became chartered by the State of Mississippi to operate under the name of Community of Christians Helping Youth aka CCHY. CCHY is a minority non-profit, tax exempt organization.
The common factor that brought CCHY into existence is our youth. We feel an obligation towards them to improve their values, habits, and behavior. CCHY is here to make a positive difference in the lives of the youth. We promote strong academic education.
Times of Operation & Schedule
The program is open Monday - Thursday, September - July. September - May, we are open for students from 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm. June and July, we are open for students from 4:00 pm - 7:00. We follow the Picayune School District's holiday break schedule.
Daily schedule (new CoVid rules) for students:
Students go directly to classrooms.
If needed, they will be helped with homework or any general studies.
Masks are required at all times. During snack, students are safely distanced so masks can be removed to eat. All areas are sanitized daily.
