We at Consilience Group were excited to see the recent feature in The Daily Memphian, highlighting Frayser Connect and the acquisition and development of their new space. This space will house their work as a hub “connecting neighborhood residents to critical resources they didn’t know about or couldn’t access previously.”
Back in 2018 Consilience Group partnered with Mass Mutual to design a philanthropic strategy that authentically engaged community voice and used that feedback to guide investment. This process led to Mass Mutual’s eventual investment in the formation of Frayser Connect via a collaboration and reinvigoration of existing organizations within Frayser. We are proud to have been able to serve successfully in our role as facilitator, creating a process that provided leaders and members of the community a platform to share their own respective visions, desires, and hopes for the future. It’s thrilling to watch now as those visions continue to take shape.
