Les Passees is Memphis’ oldest non-profit women’s organization. Our members provide advocacy and support to enhance the quality of life for children and families in the Memphis community.
Stronger children make stronger communities. Les Passees supports the Harwood Center, teaching life skills to preschoolers with learning and physical differences. Les Passees stands behind the Harwood mission: to enable children with special developmental needs to reach their full potential.
In 2016, Les Passees celebrates 30 years of Stock Exchange. This fundraiser offers the best of upscale home, decorative items and furniture consignment. Proceeds from Stock Exchange support the Les Passees Kids on the Block and the Harwood Center. Join us for our biggest season ever this fall. Forms for Stock Exchange
The magic of children teaching other kids is revealed with each performance of the child-sized puppets of the Les Passees Kids on the Block. Their powerful messages for Memphis area school children include coping with bullying, anger management, and saying no to drugs and alcohol.
