Our History

In 1987, God called Ken Bennett to a life of service in one of the most desperate neighborhoods in Memphis. With the firm conviction that the only path to true and enduring change was through the hope found in Jesus Christ, Ken began Streets Ministries with only a van, a basketball, and a heart to trust God on a daily basis. Today STREETS operates in two Memphis locations with the help of a wide array of partners. Now, nearly three decades later, STREETS serves nearly 400 students a day providing opportunities and resources to help them find their path to academic, spiritual and physical achievement.
