Shalom Zone Network
Center for Transforming Communities has trained and collaborated with a number of Shalom Zones in Memphis and throughout the Memphis region. Currently, there are five Shalom Zones active in the area, seeking shalom through projects that address crime and blight, beautify their neighborhoods, improve resident health and well-being, empower youth and elders, encourage economic development, and address many other community issues. Details about these five Shalom Zones can be found below.
2015 marked the 5th Anniversary of several of the Memphis area Shalom Zones. You can view a video of a special celebration in honor of this milestone by visiting our blog.
