      Contact detailsAbout us
      Sponsor a client in housing, donate your time or cleaning/household supplies, help with office dutiesOur team of six is out in the community every day, visiting clients to meet their needs and support them to maintain their housing

      Depaul USA houses and supports more than 75 chronic, disabled homeless men and women in scattered-site, one-bedroom apartments in the city of St. Louis.

      All of clients in this program suffer from a serious and persistent mental illness. Additionally, 90% have a co-occurring disorder of chronic health issue, addiction, developmental disability and/or HIV.  Many of our clients have not been able to be successful in the traditional care system and are without income and/or on fixed, low monthly income from a disability program.

      The population we serve are frequent users of vital community resources.  For example, many end up in the criminal justice system and hospital emergency rooms at high rates.  Additionally, individuals in our program typically use over 50% of the resources set aside to serve all the homeless in the area.  This group can be difficult to connect with in outreach initiatives and staying in their housing is a challenge for them. However, it not only benefits the individuals by getting them in stable and safe housing, it benefits the community at large.  

      Our program allows these individuals to have a place to call home and a stake in their community.

        BROWN SISTERS FOUNDATION MATCH CAMPAIGN - ST. LAZARE HOUSE

        Currently, there are no permanent supportive housing programs for homeless youth in the city of St. Louis.  Well, our team is about to change that.  Depaul USA’s St. Louis team is preparing to open St. Lazare House this Fall.  This new program is committed to ending youth homelessness.  St. Lazare House will offer 15 fully-furnished one bedroom apartments to homeless young people aged 18 to 24.  With 24/7 care, St. Lazare House will treat the trauma that comes from being young and living on the streets.  Residents will receive physical and behavioral health services, participate in education and training programs, and gain the life skills necessary to become independent and productive community members.  

        Depaul USA has received an exciting challenge grant from the Brown Sisters Foundation to support St. Lazare House’s day-to-day operation.  By the end of 2017, Depaul USA needs $100,000 in pledges or gifts to meet the challenge grant and open St. Lazare House.  Please consider making a gift to St. Louis.  We offer a special thanks to the Campaign Committee of Joe Kelley (Chair), Chuck Levesque, Jim Lammers, Janet Zachritz, Rich LaPlume, Suzanne Kenyon, Steve Wiederkehr, Ralph Glaser, and Peggy Robertson.

        Depaul USA
