STREETS Ministries Serves the City of Memphis

Streets Ministries, through the love of Jesus Christ, engages, encourages and equips young people to achieve their potential by realizing their God-given purpose.

STREETS meets students where they are with grace and understanding. Staff and volunteers spend hours each week investing time and resources to build deeper relationships with students.

ENCOURAGING GROWTH: STREETS offers proven programs designed to help students achieve their full mental, physical and spiritual potential.

EQUIPPING FOR LIFE: STREETS provides the resources and opportunities students need most to put them on the path to success.

In 1987 God called Ken Bennett to a life of service in one of the most desperate neighborhoods in Memphis. With the firm conviction that the only path to true and enduring change was through the hope found in Jesus Christ, Ken began Streets Ministries with only a van, a basketball and a heart to trust God on a daily basis. Today STREETS operates in three locations throughout Memphis with the help of a wide array of partners.

Now nearly three decades later, STREETS serves 1200 students a week providing opportunities and resources to help them find their path to academic, spiritual and physical achievement.
