It Takes a Village, Inc.

Created to improve the social outcomes for our black and b​rown children in the City of Memphis by educating them on t​heir health, oral care, financial literacy, as well as different c​areers and trades.

Not all stories ​begin with once ​upon a time.

In Memphis, we have communities of color that ​are struggling. With the rising prices of groceries, ​gas, rent, mortgages, and utilities, even the ​middle class is beginning to sink below the ​poverty line. With that being said, parents are ​working longer hours or working multiple jobs to ​make ends meet. If we click on the news, crime ​is being committed mostly by adolescents, ​especially in the warmer months.


It Takes a Village Inc. is committed to getting ​these kids out of the streets and into ​camps/programs they are interested in. We are ​also committed to funding the needs of foster ​children in the community and committed to ​keeping the children that are being released from ​the Juvenile Detention Center from becoming ​repeat offenders.

About Saundra P.

I'm passionate about giving children of color their ​best economic advantages. This nonprofit is ​named It Takes a Village, for a reason. Back in ​the day, the entire neighborhood looked after ​children, but sometime between here and there ​that has changed and THAT needs to change.

So let's do it together!
