About Us

The Bishop Shepard Little Memorial Center, Inc. is a private, non-profit, charitable organization birthed out of the Liberty Temple Church of God in Christ.

Founded in 1999 and located on Chicago’s South Side. We service residents of the West Englewood and New City communities.

Through our services we engage the families and children in the community, offering after school and weekend activities. These activities have been designed to inspire and motive them to higher heights.

Our goal is to assist children, youth and young adults who are at risk of academic, economic and family systems failure. We endeavor to accomplish this by addressing issues such as unemployment and job skills and deficiency, academic failure and school drop-out, personal, school and home violence, family disunity, health and wellness promotion and disease prevention.


Our mission is to empower, inspire, & cultivate personal, social and educational competencies in the lives of children, families and community. We help equip and empower them, through training and education, to build strong, healthy families, to become viable, productive and contributing citizens in their homes, schools, churches and communities.
