Edith Cunnane

Visionary, philanthropist, advocate, realist, idealist, miracle worker & dedicated leader. In the early 1980s on a bitterly cold day, Edith Cunnane, a social worker, asked a group of people why they were outside. In partnership with the Archdiocese of St. Louis, Catholic Charities of St. Louis and Monsignor Robert Slattery, Edith founded St. Patrick Center in 1983 inside the former St. Patrick School at 6th and Biddle Streets.

For the next ten years, she served as the Center’s first Executive Director, working tirelessly to increase services to the most vulnerable people. Under Edith’s direction, St. Patrick Center opened the Shamrock Club, the nation’s first day treatment program for mentally ill homeless people. The Casserole program and McMurphy’s Grill were also launched under her tutelage. Programs expanded to include housing assistance, employment services and life skills training.

We salute Edith Cunnane for her commitment, dedication and service to St. Patrick Center. Her leadership created a haven and resource for the most underserved and nearly forgotten people in our community – the homeless.
