Memphis, TN – Life Together, Inc., headed by COGIC Bishop David A. Hall, Sr., received a $100,000 community grant during the Shelby County Commission meeting when the FY2020 budget was passed..
Shelby County Commissioner Mickell Lowery sponsored the Resolution for the nonprofit that is located in his district in South City, where a $250 million revitalization project is underway.
Bishop Hall, the pastor of Temple COGIC, located across the street from the revitalization project, is expected to launch Life Together’s programs and services out of the old Porter Gymnasium and Boys & Girls Club. He has met and shared his vision with Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland and Paul Young, director for the Division of Housing and Community Development. They have embraced his vision to include Life Together as a part of the project.
“We are grateful to Commissioner Mickell Lowery, including budget chairman Commissioner Eddie Jones for their confidence in funding Life Together so we can broaden our mission to strengthen the lives and well-being of citizens in Memphis and Shelby County with our programs and services,” Bishop David A. Hall pointed out. “Life Together has been a significant stakeholder in the Cleaborn Homes and Foote Homes public housing projects for many years. We just want to pick up where we left off to continue to empower and impact lives. This funding is a blast off for us to expand Life Together’s exceptional service to our community. I appreciate Mayor Harris and all of our public servants on the Shelby County Commission.
Bishop Hall pointed out that the Shelby County Commission heard and responded to Life Together’s major stakeholders’ position in South City. He is hoping that Memphis City Government will do the same.
