Advance Memphis is continuing to fulfill our mission of empowering our neighbors in South Memphis to establish economic stability through Christ during the Covid – 19 outbreak. While our classes are postponed, we are serving graduates virtually and through our Staffing and Warehousing Services. As we listen closely to the changing needs of our neighbors, we are trusting God to help us develop unique strategies for supporting our individual graduates. Rather than a blanket emergency relief program at this time, however, we are committed to providing emergency relief assistance within the context of relationship.
Reconnect with graduates – Now is a GREAT time to connect with members of your previous Champion or Ally groups. If you need an updated phone number, call Kelsey Martin (901) 543 – 8525 ext. 22 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Give an Uber ride to work – Public transportation is a serious challenge for working graduates right now. A $24 donation or Uber gift card on average, provides one working graduate a safe ride to and from work for one day. Gift cards need to be in $20 – $50 increments please
Join the Care Team – Join us in calling our 165 seniors and people feeling particularly isolated. Commit to weekly phone check-ins
Share skills – We are seeking volunteers to share their expertise in marketing, video editing, business development etc.
Provide protection – We are currently collecting disposable masks and gloves for graduates working through Advance Memphis Staffing Services
The mission of Advance Memphis is to empower adults in South Memphis to break cycles of unemployment, establish economic stability, reconcile relationships, and restore dignity through knowledge, resources, and skills by the power of Jesus Christ.
