Why Us

Urban Community Ministries (UCM) was established in 2003 as one of the outreach arms of Christ's Community Church (CCC). (See www.christschurchmemphis.com for more information.) We grew out of the Study Buddy Club Tutoring program of CCC which began in the Lamar Terrace Housing Project in 1999. In that development of around 465 families with an average of 4 children, our location was a safe place for the children of the community to learn, grow, and be fed - physically and spiritually. We started with the tutoring program, but now have: - After school program (snacks, tutoring, life skills) - Summer Safe Haven (lunch, field trips, academic enrichment) - Career & Educational Assessments (Crown Ministries Career Direct) - Free Haircuts (in conjunction w/ the TN School of Applied Technology) - Financial Education (Chalmer's Center Faith & Finance Classes) - Annual Back2School Rally - Annual Community Thanksgiving Meal
Reaching Out in the Inner City to Build Strong Families and Equip Future Leaders
