In 1986 Christ United Methodist Church in Memphis, TN launched SOS as a means to meet needs of some of our city’s most vulnerable homeowners. Since then, SOS has repaired more than 900 homes in the inner-city of Memphis with more than 24,000 volunteers. Today SOS operates as its own independent 501(c)3 non-profit Christian organization. Their strategy is to focus on specific neighborhoods and to partner with low-income homeowners. They currently serve the neighborhoods of Binghampton and Orange Mound in Memphis, TN.
