Donate today to change lives tomorrow.

St. Patrick Center is a leader in ending homelessness. We provided housing support to nearly 2,200 clients and their families last year. That’s a lot of lives improved — 600 of those were new housing placements!

Ending homelessness requires resources. Half of our funding comes from the generosity of St. Louis area individuals and businesses. Please make a donation to St. Patrick Center and invest in the goals of our clients.

Be an instrument of change and give today.
