Independence at St. Louis Center
Do you remember the first time you cooked a meal for yourself? Patiently, you learned the skills needed to tackle each task of preparing the meal, and you finally had the chance to bring it all together. That feeling of independence is the ultimate accomplishment of your hard work.
Your love and support has helped people with I/DD to be resilient and overcome the tough times of 2020 and 2021. You play an important part in each of the St. Louis Center resident’s independence journey. The residents and staff of the Center thank you!

DAY TO DAY SUPPORT
St. Louis Center is facing decreased funding and increased costs during the coronavirus epidemic.
Your gift of any amount is always appreciated!
Did you know that a single day of benevolent care costs $267 per resident? Benevolent care includes residents’ food, shelter, utilities, transportation, and clothing, as well as the staff who provide loving care and activities.
Make a difference in the life of a resident when you click here and select “Provide one day of Benevolent Care for a Resident”.
Help provide support over time with a recurrent donation, matching fund, or planned gift.
We’re all excited to resume in-person ways to benefit the lives of SLC residents.
St. Louis Center provides an opportunity to interact with and get to know community members who are intellectually / developmentally disabled. Those who do quickly learn that labels are not people, and the people who call St. Louis Center home are extraordinary in many ways.
Start by telling us a bit more about what you would like to do and how much time you would like to commit here. Please be sure to let us know if you wish to volunteer as a group or have special interests.

2020 will be a year we will remember for a long time because of the challenges we had to face, but nevertheless, it has still been a year of graces.
