Summer Activities at the Emmanuel Center
This year’s summer activities at the Emmanuel Center promises to be an exciting, spiritually encouraging, academically enriching, physically competitive, and fun-filled camp! In addition to Camp H.O.P.E., the Center will also have the following activities: Over nights camps and retreats, Scholarship Reward Trips: 1.) Atlanta, GA , 2) St. Louis, MO, and 3) Nashville, TN.
As you can see in the pictures below, our community has greatly changed with the razing of Cleaborn Homes public housing community. The Center is now surrounded by beautiful, apartment homes. Although the community sites have changed, our current enrollment of youth participants remains at capacity. Presently, our enrollment consists of 40 schools throughout Shelby County with 83% of these students living in our targeted community, ZIP Code 38126, and they attend the seven local schools within a 1.5 mile radius of the Center.
I invite you to come down and take a tour of the Center and the new neighborhood. I would also like to encourage you to consider volunteering at the Emmanuel Center. Join us in ransoming the captive!
