About Social Services

We provide a wide array of social services including emergency rental, utility, and food assistance; senior services; self-sufficiency programs; a food pantry; and a resale shop. Our social services’ team works daily to help give a hand-up, not a hand out to people in South St. Louis City seeking self-sufficiency and independence.
