You are Mission: St. Louis
11 years ago, Founder Josh Wilson had a beautiful vision to impact poverty in our city. One year later – in May 2007 – vision became reality as Mission: St. Louis was officially incorporated as a nonprofit.
Over these 10 years we have realized the importance of listening over telling and have learned how to act with more than just good intentions. Our journey has been one of many steps forward, a couple steps back and lots of conversations. In 2017, after our move from Forest Park Southeast to Jeff Vander Lou, we are celebrating our 10th year of relationship building, empowerment and community.
None of our work over the last ten years was possible without YOU.
Thank you for believing in our unique approach, where we first and foremost affirm dignity. Our goal always is to say, "You matter, you have worth, and you have a role to play in our community." Your belief in our approach has grown our impact exponentially each year. Whether you have been with us since the beginning or joining in our mission today, you are changing our city for the better.
