Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.

"For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." Mark 10:45

The Homeless Outreach Program delivers mobile street outreach to individuals and families experiencing homelessness in St Louis and surrounding areas. Outreach workers seek out individuals in need living on the streets, under viaducts, and other places not meant for human habitation. The team offers basic survival items, food, sleeping bags, coats, and other necessities. Through consistent contact, the outreach team works to build trust in order to learn about the needs of those served. Outreach workers offer referrals, care coordination, and transportation to services in the community.

Food

We are always looking for restaurants that can help provide hot food preparations.

Medical Supplies

Due to the unsanitary conditions on the streets many people suffer from various wounds and infections. We are always looking for misc. medical supplies, bandages, peroxide, etc.

Water

Every week, we make sure essential hydration needs are met by distributing refreshing bottles of water to those who need it most. We believe that everyone deserves access to this vital resource!

Medicine

Having a stock pile of medicine is always helpful, we use items such as Neosporane, Peroxide, Allergy Medicine, Tooth Ache Gels, Ibuprofen, etc.

2022 US Homeless Statics

The Department of Housing and Urban Development, Department of Health and Human Services, and the Department of Veterans Affairs consider a person to be homeless if they are sleeping outside, in a place not meant for human habitation such as a car or abandoned building, or in an emergency shelter or transitional housing program. Other federal agencies have different definitions for homelessness. These include the Department of Education, which includes youth who are living doubled-up with family or friends.

  • During the 2019-2020 school year, nearly 1.3 million public school children — 2.5% of all enrolled students — experienced homelessness.
  • Young Black people have an 83% higher risk of becoming homeless than their white counterparts.
  • Young Hispanic people have a 33% greater chance of experiencing homelessness than their white counterparts.

In addition to these agencies’ definitions, there is also a “functional definition” of homelessness that is used by The Street People. This definition considers someone homeless if they lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence.
