The State of Community Health in Memphis, Tennessee
The mission of the Memphis Shalom Project is to serve the City of Memphis by mobilizing the church to leverage its spiritual and material resources to transform our most distressed neighborhoods through the local neighborhood church.
The city of Memphis has long been considered one of the major crossroads of America. Musically, culturally, economically and geographically, many streams converge into one diverse river city situated on the western tip of Tennessee.
Memphis Shalom Project will coordinate the efforts of willing churches and agencies in the City of Memphis. We plan to accomplish this by identifying assets and key areas of need to develop a strategy for the neighborhood-based church to use in addressing these needs.
