Gulfport Excel By 5

Welcome to Gulfport Excel By 5!

The City of Gulfport achieved its designation as an Excel By 5 Certified Community in July of 2014. For two years, a dedicated group of volunteers in the community worked diligently as an Excel By 5 Coalition to survey the community, analyze the data, and create learning opportunities for families designed to meet their needs. This designation is the culmination of months of hard work by a community that had vowed to make life better for families and children. We view the Excel By 5 certification as proof that Gulfport, Mississippi offers “Blue Ribbon” support services to families with young children that live here.

Thanks go especially to the Gulfport cabinet members and committee chairs that worked to present community events, health and safety fairs, training sessions and resource guides since the group’s first meeting in May of 2012. The Coalition is determined to continue to grow with the ever-changing needs of the Gulfport community.
