Southeast Memphis CDC

Working in southeast Memphis, including Hickory Hill and the surrounding neighborhoods, Southeast Memphis CDC serves an area that makes up close to half of the city’s housing market and 20 percent of Memphis. In partnership with Phelps Security, the University of Memphis, and Memphis Police Department, Southeast Memphis CDC is working on the “Project Safeways” Business Strategy. The initiative will engage local business owners in crime prevention and intervention through establishing a business association, access to crime prevention tools and resources, and training. The CDC, in partnership with the LeMoyne Owen College Community Development Corporation and Tennessee Voices for Children are also implementing a pilot youth development program.
