Caring for our neighbors is key to a strong community.
By supporting people’s basic needs — safe havens, stocked pantries, support and more — we’re creating the conditions necessary for survival, success and independence. With this strong foundation today, we position people for a better, brighter tomorrow.
United Way of Greater St. Louis helps:
- Provide the basics like food, clothing and shelter
- Work to prevent violence and provide necessary response including safe havens for children, youth and adults
- Provide a free, confidential, 24/7 resource, United Way 2-1-1 Helpline, to connect individuals with the service referrals they need for support and intervention
- Convene and participate in initiatives across local government, faith-based organizations and service-providing agencies to ensure the greatest positive impact in the human services area
