Mission: St. Louis fights poverty using a community-based model that values relationship. The experts in a community are those who are living there, taking part in the life of the neighborhood every single day. We want to serve alongside those experts, empowering them to lead the way in bringing about lasting change. We strive to bring together organizations, churches, and residents in the neighborhood to work together collaboratively. Our mission is to transform St. Louis through education, empowerment, and economic development by connecting organizations and churches with neighborhoods in need. Our vision is that every community will be a safe and nurturing environment for individuals and families.
