United Way of Greater St. Louis recently added three new agencies into its fold of locally funded health and human service organizations. The new additions will help more people within our community live their best possible lives. The three newly admitted agencies are: College Bound, Redevelopment Opportunities for Women and St. Clair County Child Advocacy Center.
Since 2006, College Bound has provided promising students from under-resourced backgrounds the academic enrichment, social supports and life skills needed to succeed in college and careers. College Bound is the only program in the St. Louis region with a year-round curriculum that includes career exposure, community engagement, test preparation, social-emotional development and academic enrichment so that students not only get to college, they graduate from college.
Redevelopment Opportunities for Women
Redevelopment Opportunities for Women’s mission is to empower women and their families to build safety, skills, economic security and hope for the future. Redevelopment Opportunities for Women has a longstanding history of implementing programs that stabilize lives and create opportunities for women facing enormous challenges — particularly poverty, domestic violence and homelessness.
St. Clair County Child Advocacy Center
St. Clair County Child Advocacy Center coordinates the multi-disciplinary response to the sexual and serious physical abuse of children in St. Clair, Randolph and Monroe counties. They also serve children who have witnessed violent crime.
