901Bloc is focused on intervention and prevention programs to address the challenge of youth gun violence in Memphis.

The 901B.L.O.C. program focuses specifically on youth crime involving guns. Its guiding principle is to meet the city’s at-risk youth where they are and help them pursue a non-violent path.

901B.L.O.C. operates in Frayser, South Memphis, the Mt. Moriah corridor, and Orange Mound. It is one of Innovate Memphis’ most “mature programs,” Entzminger said, formed during the A C Wharton administration. It was created to make people more safe and connect at-risk youth to a non-violent life.
