I have worked with several nonprofits in my career, and Advance Memphis has far and away done the best job of actively seeking out community members and fostering deep relationships between staff, volunteers, and the community it is a part of.
Advance does a masterful job of connecting its clients to excellent resources and people that truly bring change to the whole person, far surpassing its mission to provide the knowledge and skills to find work and save money. With a curriculum firmly rooted in the truth of the Bible and the good news of Jesus Christ, Advance is committed to lasting and holistic change.
Furthermore, I am impressed with Advance's dedication to provide the community it serves with the best possible services. The organization is continually reviewing best practices and actively listening to the community it loves for input and direction.
I have witnessed Advance change the lives of countless clients, staff, and volunteers and would encourage anyone to be a part of what the Lord is doing through Advance.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the lessons i've learned through building relationships with people of a different background.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
passionate about giving themselves for the sake of others.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
About every week

Former staff & As the IDA program manager I helped Advance revamp and expand their IDA program, taught sections of the Money Management class, and strengthened relationships between Advance and individual community members.
