Help cover the cost of benevolent care for residents like Jacqui, Lisa, Lee, and Sarah.

Jaqui, like many of the other residents at the center, rely on your help to provide the Benevolent Care that is needed to help him maintain her community-oriented life.

We use the term Benevolent Care often here at St. Louis Center, but what does that mean? The Center receives funding from residents (through social security), their families and/or state and federal sources. However, the cost of care exceeds those reimbursements by $3,000 to $5,000 a month per resident, depending on their level of need. St. Louis Center must raise Benevolent Care funds to cover that gap. Those funds provide for direct care workers who provide for residents’ daily needs, shelter, clothing, food, and things like toiletries and supplies.

Benevolent Care donations are tax deductible and help St. Louis Center provide a dynamic and engaged life for its 64 residents each day. You can learn more about Benevolent Care at St. Louis Center here.
