History of Community Project Inc.

Community Project Incorporated was chartered in 1977. Bishop Willie Lee Porter began the organization to benefit the North Memphis community where he pastored. Born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, Mr. Porter knew the city and its people well. With his Christ-like compassion and business shrewdness, he consistently found ways to bring resources to the people who needed it most.
Community Project was—and is—a center for the resources of Shelby County. The corporation began with offering programs through Greater Community Temple COGIC’s facilities and then accumulating others to make resources accessible to the residents of North Memphis. Under W.L. Porter’s leadership and the administrative support of his wife, Mrs. Ida M. Porter, Community Project started provided essential services:

• A Food Stamp Program, serving approximately one-hundred (100) persons per day to supplement low income families, welfare recipients, and Senior Citizens.
• A Day Care Center, caring for approximately two-hundred (200) children of low-income working parents.
• A satellite station where citizens can pay light, gas, and water bills.
• A Neighborhood Youth Corps program consisting of one-hundred sixty-five (165) enrollees.
• A Senior Citizens Home, converting a hospital into a hospitable residence for the elderly.

Community Project has added to this list under the leadership of Bishop Brandon Porter, son of Mr. W.L. and Mrs. Ida M. Porter such as the New Chicago Activities Center, The W.L., Miracles In Memphis and more. Over 40 years, Community Project continues to make the good of the community its project!
