Bridging the Gap
Bridging the Gap Enterprises seeks to strengthen communities where societal issues and generational obstacles have hobbled Memphis for far too long. Through our unique programs, we will “build bridges to close gaps within our community.” The harvest in plenty but laborers are few.
Our 2021 strategic programs are designed to address our most critical needs within the community especially those impacted by the pandemic. We will offer tutoring programs to address K-12 learning losses.
We aspire to provide essential programs that help individuals, families, and communities reach their fullest potential through advocacy and partnerships.
