About The HUB:
The Hospitality Hub, often referred to as The HUB, is the region’s single point of entry for homeless individuals. The HUB sees over 2,000 newly homeless individuals each year. The HUB assesses individuals' needs and connects them with stabilizing resources as well as providing direct services including providing state identification, mail, storage, triage. The Hub's Work Local program is a partnership with the City of Memphis to employ people and clean up blight. The Hub Hotel was built as a pandemic response and provides transitional housing to women. You can read more about how the Hub Hotel started in Fast Company.
This past month The HUB broke ground on a new facility which will be the home of a trauma-informed shelter for women and children, expanded Hub operations, and public and private gardens. The Hub has also launched a pilot to provide individual temporary shelter through it’s Hub Studios. The HUB is currently identifying land, partners, and funding to expand the Hub Studios and finish the capital campaign for the Hub Campus at 590 Washington. This work was recently covered by High Ground News.

About Tuune & Silvr:
Tunne and Silvr became homeless after selling all of their belongings in order to tour the U.S. and promote their soon to be released single "Rock Yo Body". They understood that though they had made a conscious decision to give up everything and be homeless in order to pursue their dreams, that was not the case for many people without a home today. They thought of ways they could help other people and realized that though they didn't have much, they had the talent to make and perform music. They decided to make the Tuunes Creating Silvr L-ings Tour. I tour where they would travel the U.S. working to make their dreams a reality and using their talents to raise money and help other homeless people around the country. They chose to go a step further and not only put together a concert, but donate a portion of their merchandise proceeds to the shelter, feed the local community and invite other out to enjoy the music, eat, and donate as well.
The concert will consist of free food, live music, other talent showcases and vendors.
All the proceeds from this campaign are donated to the Hospitality HUB directly.
