Why we move beyond charity.


Education and employment go a long way toward providing opportunity to people in St. Louis, but other needs still exist. Beyond Charity programs meet the other needs of our city in empowering ways, creating a complete foundation for people and communities to flourish. From older adults to kids and their families, our diverse range of programs impact leaders of all ages so they can stay in the neighborhood they're transforming.
