About Our Social Service Programs

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.

Watch to learn more:

Food Pantry

Our food pantry provides food assistance to people living in zip codes 63104 and 63118. The pantry stocks most staples, like canned foods, bread, pastas, rice, beans, etc. Fresh produce and meat are available frequently as well.

Things to know:

If you have an urgent food need, you can request an emergency bag right away. Follow-up appointments are usually available within 24hrs. Please call (314)773-9027 for more information. 

Donate to our Food Pantry

If you or an organization you represent, such as a school, church, corporation or social group, would like to schedule a one-time or regular donation drop-off, please contact Rebecca Ryan, Food Pantry Manager, at (314) 773.9027 or ryanr@gasastl.org.

Self Improvement Classes

We offer a wide variety of self-improvement classes throughout the year, including financial literacy, healthy cooking and helpful parenting courses. All upcoming classes can be found in our social service event calendar. Registration is required to attend.

Emergency Assistance

Emergency Assistance Program provides direct assistance to families, seniors and individuals who are at risk for eviction, foreclosure and/or utility shut-off.

Those who receive direct housing aid also participate in one-on-one self-sufficiency counseling and/or workshops. These activities cover a variety of topics including:
