On October 1st of 2013, while working to establish their own 501 (c) (3), the Emmanuel Episcopal Center came under the umbrella of the Memphis Leadership Foundation.
Founded in 1989 by Father Colenzo Hubbard, the Emmanuel Center assists children and adults in the Foote and Cleaborn Homes and surrounding communities. Their programs and services such as evangelism, education, social services, community relations and sports has enabled them to serve more than 2,000 people per year.
Through their partnership with the Memphis Leadership Foundation the Emmanuel Center will receive administrative support while continuing their wonderful ministry.
