MIFA’s Something Good in Memphis campaign is designed to celebrate those who make Memphis better, whether it’s the stranger who helps change your flat tire in the rain or a human services pioneer who changes the lives of a hundred poor Memphians. Sometimes people tend to focus on the bad and forget the good, but we see reminders of the good in Memphis every day!


Recognizing someone is quick and easy – just send us an email! Acknowledge friends, neighbors,and colleagues whose daily efforts or remarkable deeds embody the spirit of positive action in our community. Thank you for being a part of the good in Memphis!


The Something Good in Memphis project was created by MIFA in 2009 to advance our vision of uniting the community through service. Our mission is supporting the independence of vulnerable seniors and families in crisis through high-impact programs. Our values are to welcome and respect all people, act with integrity, value individual initiative and ability, serve individuals and the community as an act of faith, and balance humanitarian goals with sound business practices. Learn more about MIFA here

Sherry Johnson is an inspiration for students

"Sherry Johnson, Parent Counselor at Cypress Middle School is Something Good in Memphis. Sherry is the best enroller of people I know. She does a stellar job of recruiting, engaging and retaining volunteers for Cypress. Sherry's enthusiasm for Cypress and its student population is contagious. She encourages, motivates, and inspires students to push pass their comfort zones to aim beyond the stars. She teaches them that their present circumstances do not determine who they are as a person. Sherry's 'can do' attitude brings good things to life at Cypress. Like her colleagues, she is a true champion of the scholars at Cypress Middle School. It's a privilege to work with and support Sherry in my role as Rhodes College Community Liaison. Her role as Parent Counselor enhances Rhodes College commitment as a dedicated adopter of Cypress Middle School. Ms. Sherry Johnson is the face of Cypress to other adopters, students, volunteers and the Midtown North community. She cares and it shows in how she articulates Memphis City Schools and Cypress vision for the scholars under her watch." Nominated by Dorothy Cox.
