He Said She Said Trivia supports St. Patrick Center programs and services that end homelessness for individuals and families in the St. Louis region.






St. Patrick Center is building permanent, positive change one life at a time. Each client is important; each donor is valued, each dollar is vital to our ability to help people change their lives.



More than 3,700 St. Patrick Center volunteers each year donate nearly 45,000 hours sorting donations, working fundraising events, serving lunch, making casseroles and more.



We have a variety of events throughout the year, from fundraisers to client events, community support and young friends.

Housing First

St. Patrick Center is working collaboratively to transform homeless services and end chronic homelessness in the St. Louis region. Collaborations are with service providers, faith-based organizations, the business community and all levels of government.

There is one solution to ending chronic homelessness: housing. How will we do it? Housing First, a homeless assistance approach that prioritizes providing people experiencing homelessness with permanent housing as quickly as possible, and then providing supportive services as needed.


St. Patrick Center offers employment programs aimed at getting people back on their feet through job readiness training, advanced skills and placement into full-time and part-time jobs.


St. Patrick Center offers several programs and support services for veterans who served our country then found themselves homeless or at risk.


St. Patrick Center offers health programs for people experiencing behavioral health issues, such as mental illness and substance abuse. Through partnerships, we also connect people to primary healthcare through Affinia Healthcare and meditation groups through Anthropedia Foundation.


When Biddle Housing Opportunities Center opened in Summer 2016, Brian was one of the first guests. A former Marine, he had fallen on hard times, after losing his maintenance job and his gig maintaining family-owned properties.

“I ran out of money and became homeless.” For two years, Brian lived in shelters and wandered the streets of downtown St. Louis. “At first, I went to St. Patrick Center for a hot meal.” It was a later walk down the street to Biddle when things began to change.

“They gave me a place to lay my head.” Brian was assigned to one of the bunks in the emergency overnight men’s shelter. “Biddle was different, though. I was on a path to a place of my own, if I would just listen and take advantage of the opportunity presented to me.”
