90th Anniversary

BRIDGES has been serving the Memphis area for nine decades! 

In 1922, women from Calvary Episcopal Church and St. Mary's Episcopal Cathedral established the Church Mission of Help, whose focus was on “wayward and delinquent women and girls over 16 who found themselves in difficulty.”

A lot has changed since then, and today, BRIDGES serves thousands in the Memphis area annually, to build a community of leaders to advance racial, economic, educational and environmental justice.

We're having a year-long celebration to commemorate the rich history of BRIDGES and all there is to come in the years ahead. Join us for our 90th Anniversary Events!

Thank you to our 90th Anniversary sponsors:
