SimpleFolk Network (SFN) is a Christian ministry founded by Damon Davis in 2017, expanding on mission activities he had initiated as early as 2009 to benefit a range of community efforts in Birmingham, with a focus on the Woodlawn and Avondale communities.
SimpleFolk Network has sponsored and mentored participants in basketball leagues at Iron City Sports and the Martin Luther King Jr Park recreation center in North Avondale. It has also partnered with Anthony's Barber & Style and Real Cutz to offer free haircutting events at Ramsay High School, and with Trafficking Hope to hold car wash events to spread awareness of sex-trafficking.
The group has worked with the YWCA on programs for working parents, and with its "CREW" program for teenagers. It has organized Urban Philanthropist (UP) Events such as "Lyrics For Literacy", a spoken-word showcase to raise resources and awareness of adult literacy, benefitting the Literacy Council of Central Alabama and M-Power Ministries. It also publishes videos, social media articles and e-books addressing issues of contemporary life.
SimpleFolk Network assisted with the development of youth and young adult ministries at Greater Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church, and ultimately launched a new Collective Community Church (C3) in Avondale as an outgrowth of its "Collective Discipleship" program held at The Abbey.
