Mississippi Center for Legal Services Corporation and Prairie Opportunity, Inc. will sponsor an educational workshop discussing civil legal matters on Wednesday, Aug. 27 at 4 p.m., at Prairie Opportunity, Inc., 201 Chipley Street, Carthage. Topics to be discussed are Social Security benefits, birth certificate issues, wills and trusts preparations.

We will also discuss the eligibility requirements for various benefit programs.

Mississippi Center for Legal Services Corporation's mission is to serve eligible persons in Mississippi who cannot afford civil legal services by protecting their legal rights and providing competent legal representation in civil matters.

We believe that it is important to let people in the Carthage area know there is help available. In order to promote awareness and inform the community, Mississippi Center for Legal Services Corporation has formed a partnership with Prairie Opportunity, Inc.
