Dear Friends,

The remodeling of St. Joseph Hall is progressing on schedule. Soon we will be able to slate a re-dedication date. For this occasion, we will invite all of you to see the growth of St. Louis Center and the innovations enabling the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to shine in all their splendor as ‘precious people’ in the sight of God. Stay up-to-date on our website.

This transforms St. Louis Center into a ‘lighthouse of hope’ for families and society. The care for people with I/DD reveals the level of civility we have in our relationships and society.

Spring is a busy time for us: we have to plan the activities and services we will be able to provide during the 2023-24 fiscal year. You are an integral part of this dream! I want to thank you for your support and love.

At present, we are also working on renovation plans for the kitchen. It was built in 1960 and has done its services. Food preparation is very different now than in those days. With the aging of the people we serve, the meals need to be individualized and their preparation requires more work space.

Soon a group of residents will be selling handcrafted goods at the Chelsea Farmer’s Market. Consider visiting their booth at the Wednesday Market. Planning for the summer fund-raising events is under way. We are always looking for new volunteers to help. Give us a call!
