JACKSON, Miss. - March 30, 2022
 - Cadence Bank, formerly BancorpSouth Bank, announced today its $400,000 contribution to Canopy Children’s Solutions (Canopy), supporting their mission to help children thrive and families overcome extraordinary challenges by providing a continuum of behavioral health, educational and social service solutions.

Canopy will use the donations to expand their CARES Center, a residential center for children with emotional and behavioral issues, as well as their CARES School program in Jackson, which serves children with educational challenges. In addition, the organization will use portions of the contribution to support their behavior health clinics, residential treatment, autism solution support, and adoption and foster care solutions.

"It's an honor to support Canopy and their mission to champion the children of Mississippi," said Brad Maley, president – Jackson, Mississippi market. "For over a decade, I have personally seen the positive and life-changing impact Canopy has had on children and families in our great state, and we are pleased to support them in helping our communities thrive."

Canopy was established in 1912 as the “Children's Home Society” with the mission of placing orphaned children into permanent, loving homes. Through time and cultural shifts, changes in society, and in the definition of “family,” Canopy has expanded its role as a champion for Mississippi’s children. Over the past 100 years, Canopy pioneered programs for children suffering from abuse, addiction, psychiatric illness and developmental disorders.

“We are incredibly grateful for the transformational partnership of BancorpSouth, now Cadence Bank. Because of their willingness to prioritize the mission of Canopy continuously since 2019, thousands of children statewide have been given access to mental and behavioral healthcare solutions,” said John Damon, CEO of Canopy Children’s Solutions. The leadership of Cadence Bank regularly evaluates the impact within our communities and has continued to invest deeper in our mission. Our 110 years of excellence is built on transformational partnerships such as this, and we are indeed very grateful.”
