Make plans to join us now! The 12th Annual Memphis Union Mission Heritage Classic, presented by Kemmons Wilson Companies will be here before you know it!
In 1952, entrepreneur Kemmons Wilson opened the very first Holiday Inn in Memphis, Tennessee. Mr. Wilson’s vision for a quality, affordable nights’ lodging grew into a company that left an indelible mark on the hospitality industry – not to mention the American landscape, with his iconic Holiday Inn sign.
The Sixteenth Annual Inner City Outreach will be here soon, and we hope you can join us!

Since opening in 2002, Memphis Union Mission's Wright Transitional House has helped many formerly homeless men transitional back into the community.
Last summer, the women and children of Moriah House enjoyed their own version of Extreme Makeover, courtesy of some caring volunteers from Grace Evangelical Church in Germantown. At Moriah House, each woman has her own room (either by herself or with her children). But over the years some of the residents’ rooms experienced some wear and tear and were in need of an overhaul.
Six years ago, after Andy Quaranta lost his job, he was faced a dilemma regarding his charitable giving.
Every few weeks, the lobby of Memphis Union Mission's Emergency Shelter at 383 Poplar Ave. is aswarm with people donning blue and white coats. The coats are worn by students and faculty from the University of Memphis School of Nursing, who are enrolled in the school's community health class.
If you were to walk into our Opportunity Center on any Wednesday morning, you could be forgiven for thinking that you had accidentally walked into a barber college.
