About Us

Gulf Coast Industries (GCI) is a Gulf Coast Mental Health Center (GCMHC; Region XIII) program which provides prevocational training for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It is our belief that every person, no matter what the nature or degree of disability, can have an opportunity to become a part in the competitive work force. Our goal is to provide meaningful learning activities, as well as work experiences, where individuals can develop general strengths and skills that contribute to paid employment in the community. GCI also provides educational activities, specific life training lessons, and community outings to enhance independence.  

 

  • We are certified by the Mississippi Department of Mental Health (DMH), which sets standards for prevocational services throughout the state.
  • We observe the Federal Immigration Act, which governs the employment of immigrant workers.
  • We are inspected annually by the local fire department to ensure safe work conditions. 
  • Requirements of the Equal Opportunity Act are also observed.
