The Shora Difference

Shora has been serving East Knoxville for more than 15 years. We offer a safe, secure & sensitive environment for your child, while communicating love to each and everyone of them. Your child will grow during learning opportunities and enrichment programs all year-round. Ways we make a difference:

Building the leaders of tomorrow by starting today!

Regular mental health checks.

Volunteer and giving opportunities that transform East Knoxville. 

Food sustainability initiative, including backpack meals.

Your Generosity Matters

Without the generosity of our donors, we would not be able to serve the families and kids that we serve on a day to day bases. To learn more about how you can help us fulfill our mission, click the buttons below.

Empowering Children

Shora means Safe Place in Nigeria. That is what we provide, a safe place for children that is a community asset and volunteer driven. We care about East Knoxville, one child at a time, and one family at a time. The community is most important to us, so we protect the most valued legacy, the children. We help their knowledge before going back to school, helping prevent the summer-slide.
