why choose advance?
Advance Memphis was founded in 1999 to bring about economic revitalization in Memphis, Tennessee. Advance Memphis focuses on the 38126 zip code area of South Memphis, which includes and surrounds the Cleaborn/Foote public housing developments. In 1999, the 38126 zip code was listed as the 3rd poorest urban zip code in the nation. Today, it has the 5th lowest average income in the state of Tennessee. The community is plagued by multi-generational poverty and its symptoms: crime, unemployment, low graduation rates, and a high infant mortality rate. In spite of these statistics, the neighborhood is blessed with many residents who desire to work hard to learn, grow, and care for their families and neighbors.
Advance Memphis trains and employs hundreds of graduates each year. Our business clients choose us because of the quality of our faith-based programs and because our space and services are right for them.
Please make an appointment to visit the Warehouse, meet our employees, and see our services first hand.
