Our Employment Programs
We offer various programs for job-seekers in St. Louis City, St. Louis County, and Illinois.
We recognize that, in order to maintain employment, clients may need additional supportive services. That is why we also offer housing and mental health services to qualifying participants in our programs.
Referral Only Services
In partnership with the St. Louis City and St. Louis County continuum of care, we provide additional housing services. These services are by referral only through 2-1-1 or local shelters.
