At The Center of Change
St. Patrick Center provides opportunities for self-sufficiency and dignity to people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Individuals and families build permanent, positive change in their lives through safe and affordable housing, sound mental and physical health, and employment and financial stability.
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.
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.
