MESSAGE FROM THE CEO

We’re well past one year of COVID-19 and serving people in a pandemic. Thanks for all you’ve done to keep our mission alive. Our staff have been vaccinated, we’ve begun Phase Three of our Restoration Plan and we’re working with community partners to vaccinate our clients.

Those are the lead stories, yet there is still other news. We launched new branding that we’re excited to share with you. See our new mission, vision, values and more. Because we couldn’t gather with you at our large Trivia Party event, we began a new campaign – Operation Safe at Home – to prevent homelessness for families, veterans and individuals facing critical worries like job loss and eviction. Our incredibly generous donors helped us to meet our anonymous donor match and surpass our goal. Thank you!

The need continues. The pandemic isn’t over yet and its effects will be felt for years. An eviction moratorium doesn’t mean rents won’t be due. If you’re able to give to Operation Safe at Home, please do and know that you will help transform lives and keep people sustainably housed.

On July 1, 2021, we will begin a new three-year Strategic Plan, one that promises to follow our mission while undertaking key initiatives to accomplish our vision for the future of the St. Louis community.
