Our supportive programs continue to touch and shape the lives of Saint Louis’ most vulnerable populations, including foster youth, low and moderate income families, individuals/families who have experienced personal and community trauma and justice involved individuals. We have developed and implemented programs that continue to help create a safer, stronger and healthier Saint Louis community.
What Our Community
Says About Us
I was accepted into the Community Response Independent Living Program when I was 18 years old. Being in foster care was not easy. Ms. Barbara and the staff helped me learn how to be independent and take care of my apartment. I learned how to budget, shop, cook, keep a job and so much more. Thanks to Community Response, I am comfortable paying my bills, staying employed and handling my business.
