MIFA’s Something Good in Memphis campaign is designed to celebrate those who make Memphis better, whether it’s the stranger who helps change your flat tire in the rain or a human services pioneer who changes the lives of a hundred poor Memphians. Sometimes people tend to focus on the bad and forget the good, but we see reminders of the good in Memphis every day!


Recognizing someone is quick and easy – just send us an email! Acknowledge friends, neighbors,and colleagues whose daily efforts or remarkable deeds embody the spirit of positive action in our community. Thank you for being a part of the good in Memphis!

Our mission is supporting the independence of vulnerable seniors and families in crisis through high-impact programs. Our values are to welcome and respect all people, act with integrity, value individual initiative and ability, serve individuals and the community as an act of faith, and balance humanitarian goals with sound business practices. Learn more about MIFA here

Linda Seely makes an impact


Linda Warren Seely, Director of Private Attorney Involvement at Memphis Area Legal Society, makes an incredible impact in the lives of so many people in the Memphis area. She has worked diligently to expand access and legal assistance to low-income and elderly residents in Shelby, Fayette, Lauderdale and Tipton counties through such initiatives as the Attorney of the Day Pro Se Advice and Counsel Clinic held weekly in the Shelby County Courthouse and through Saturday Legal Clinics held in various churches. She also manages the Income Maintenance, Health & Elder Law unit of Memphis Area Legal Society and currently serves as president of the Memphis Bar Association. It’s no wonder that Linda has received many honors and awards including Woman’s Magazine’s “50 Women Who Make a Difference in Memphis.” But best of all, she teaches others the awe-inspiring beauty of helping others. Nominated by Mark Berryhill.
