who we are
Living Grace is a multi-faceted non-profit organization that caters to the advancement of youth in the city of Memphis. With programs designed to enhance academic, social, and economic development, Living Grace has established a reputation of true servanthood and advocacy in the city's most vulnerable populations. The majority of children and young adults we serve reside in underserved neighborhoods and have been identified as homeless under the McKinney-Vento Act. We provide an individualized college and career readiness program, scholarships that encourage innovation and service, school supplies and toiletries, grooming services, and healthcare referrals. Living Grace stands as an advocate for equal opportunities among youth and we are dedicated to creating environments that produce seeds of excellence back into our communities.
Living Grace expands
Living Grace originated as a non-profit designed to provide resources for homeless youth in Memphis. Within three years of operation, our programs have grown and consist of a full range of academic and social initiatives that provide all youth with an opportunity to move forward to the next step. This expansion has created endless opportunities to serve youth of all ages within urban communities with the necessary tools to succeed from Kindergarten to career.
