Loaves and Fishes for St. Louis, Inc.
Loaves and Fishes For St. Louis is an emergency homeless shelter that provides immediate assistance to families (with minor children) who without our assistance would be living on the streets, in a car or other place not meant for human dwelling. With our help, families will begin their journey toward self-sufficiency. This includes client-centered housing plans that are goal oriented, trackable and supported through life skill classes, parenting classes, peer support, addiction/recovery support, mental health evaluations and links to mainstream resources. Our primary focus for children is educational enrollment/support, meeting nutritional needs, counseling services and creating programming that promotes family unity and bonding. Children need stability; it is our primary goal to end homeless quickly, getting children into a stable home life where they can grow and learn without the stigmatism that often comes with homelessness.
