This Month on The Spark the theme is
“Restoring Hope and Home”


A monthly series about business and community leaders who are fueling change by giving back to the Mid-South. Each month on The Spark hometown heroes who are affecting change and leading by example are showcased.

This month on The SPARK our theme is “Restoring Hope and Home.” We’ll learn more about long-term, faith-based drug and alcohol treatment program for adult males that’s transforming lives; a local summer camp treating foster kids like royalty; and a company specializing in fire and water damage restoration that’s physically putting homes back together again. Sometimes in life to see the best, we have to deal with the worst. The worst could be the loss of job or a loved one or friend, a sickness, an addiction, or a disaster, like a fire consuming your home and memories. These moments of darkness bring out the light, though, and help us find and see the best in others and in ourselves. Organizations like Adult and Teen Challenge of Memphis are helping men who’ve hit their rock bottom not only become clean and sober, but heal relationships with their family and gain skills for employment, as well. Royal Family Kids Camp of Cordova is transforming the lives of local foster children, who many times have faced abuse and felt hopeless, and treating them like royalty, celebrating them with unconditional love, endless activities, and personal attention to fill their hearts with hope. Then, companies like McCabe Construction Company are able to step in during the worst of times, after a fire or water damage, and restore your home and peace of mind. After a storm comes the rainbow and we’re blessed in Memphis with organizations and individuals who will help us deal with the worst, so we can see and enjoy the best.

We’ll also share a special moment from our SPARK Awards 2016.
