Center for Transforming Communities (CTC) builds up the cultural, economic, social, physical and municipal health of neighborhoods. Our neighborhood connectors transmit and archive the authentic voices of a neighborhood so that voices and resources can move in unison. Through resident-led community building initiatives, ethical storytelling practices and asset-based community development (communities of Shalom), we bridge the gap between residents and institutions and connect the voice of a community to its power. 

CTC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that relies on the support of individuals and others to continue (and build on) our transformative work in the Memphis region. If you would like to be a part of the movement to seek shalom in our neighborhoods and communities, please consider making a donation to CTC today.  For more information, follow the link to our donations page below.
