Mississippi united to end homelessness, or muteh also works with the city of tupelo to find housing for those who want to get off the streets.

Data shows the homeless population in tupelo has dropped 20 percent in the past year.

Today supporters of the first friends adult day care took part in a walk to raise money for the facility which provides positive living for the memory impaired.

She says it was created in order to give caregivers some break time.

But it is so much more than that.

"we were only open for about a week when we realized that it was not just for the caregiver that we started this.

It's for the person who has dementia because they had a twinkle in their eye when they left at the end of the day.

And we still believe that.

It's socialization which is so very important for them."

Dorris says they use the walk to raise money so they don't have to charge so much for their service which normally costs 25-dollars a day or 5-dollars an hour.

They are normally open from 10-4 mondays, wednesdays and thursdays.

Bouchillon lives next door and gets to see his childhood home now be a home for the community "it's great to have new faces come out and see mike beuhlr and allison have really did a good job bringing about the homestead and teaching."

Saturday hundreds of people showed up to learn about animals, gardening, home &, and sustainability and holistic childbirth support at their homestead day.

"what's so cool about the homestead is that it's just people from all walks of life that come together to learn about where their food comes from where their energy comes from and how to garden and how to do things that everybody used to know how to do but we've kind of forgotten this is the first time kaeli holeman has been to a homestead day "i'm really here for the bees because i'm going to be a first time bee keeper come spring and this has been such a learning experience for me.
