A New Kind of Community Center

In 2003, Joan Kroc gave The Salvation Army $1.5 billion of matching funds for the construction of Ray & Joan Kroc Corps Community Centers across the United States. After undergoing a rigorous application and selection process, Memphis became eligible to receive a matching gift from the Kroc Trust in 2005.

The Ray & Joan Kroc Community Center is a 100,000-square-foot recreation, education, worship and arts center. Amenities include:

  • NBA-quality basketball courts
  • Soccer fields
  • Aquatic features
  • Fitness center
  • Worship area
  • Art rooms
  • Theater
  • Meeting rooms
  • Classroom facilities
  • Referral programs
  • Kroc Café

The Kroc Center is a safe, caring and exciting place in our community where residents of all ages, races, educational backgrounds and economic means can come together to learn, grow, and explore their potential and to experience God's love in the process.
