Generous Life Foundation dba Memphis Dream Center has a mission of closing the opportunity gap for underserved children and families by addressing educational inequity, food insecurity and family stability. Our programs and initiatives are the avenues through which our mission is accomplished on a daily basis. They include: FeedMemphis, Family Enrichment Center, Family Advocacy Center, and Read2Lead.

FeedMemphis | Programs and events addressing food insecurity in the Mid-South. From monthly family food boxes to weekend food bag programs, the FeedMemphis initiative of the Memphis Dream Center seeks to help those experiencing food insecurity by meeting tangible needs.

Family Enrichment Center | Located at our Austin Peay location, the Family Enrichment Center provides Adult Education classes through a partnership with HopeWorks and Greater Memphis Financial Empowerment Center. Course offerings include one on one financial coaching, adult basic education classes, FastTrack career readiness courses, and English as a Second Language + Civics (ESL+), which provides English language learners the opportunity to prepare for citizenship tests. A career development coach is on-site three days a week.

Family Advocacy Center | Through the Family Advocacy Center located at our Highland Dream Center location, we offer physical spaces and developmental programs for families navigating crises as well as those who walk with and support them. We provide tangible needs such as bedding, clothing, diapers, school uniforms and groceries, as well as spiritual and emotional support. Family Advocacy offers support groups and parenting classes. We are raising funds and collecting new, unused items to resource the families referred to us.

Read2Lead | (R2L) serves K-6th grade children attending Title 1 schools in under-resourced and under-served neighborhoods. R2L provides high-quality academic and enrichment opportunities and family engagement in an out-of-school time (OST) setting. This program focuses on closing the academic and opportunity gaps for children in a safe, life-giving environment.
