Donate today to change lives tomorrow.

St. Patrick Center needs you. We move hundreds of people into housing each year and witness how dramatically a home changes a life. Our clients tell us housing changes everything.

Ending homelessness requires resources. Half of our funding comes from the generosity of St. Louis area individuals and businesses. Your donation of clothing, food and financial support will will help us provide life-changing opportunities and end homelessness for families.
