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.



    No one should have to sleep on the streets or in an unsafe place
    Depaul USA works with disadvantaged populations in communities across the country, to prevent homelessness and provide support to individuals at every step of their journey. 
    From day  resources to permanent supported-housing, we provide services unique to the needs of each community. 

    Our Values

    Celebrating the potential of people

    Depaul USA works to empower people affected by homelessness to make decisions, set goals, take risks and learn from their mistakes. We work with the most excluded people and treat all who use the services with respect – acting only after consulting with them. Depaul USA believes in a culture of volunteering and provides a way for volunteers to express their care and compassion. Staff and volunteers are vital in achieving the mission and are equally committed to developing their skills and unlocking the full potential of service users.

    Putting our words into action

    We put our words into action: our reputation depends on it. However, we also strive to influence others through having a strong public profile. Depaul is committed to finding new ways of tackling the problems faced by homeless people. This innovation and entrepreneurship means listening to service users, volunteers and staff and acting on their ideas. We take risks in working with people affected by homelessness who sometimes have challenging behavior.

    Aiming to take a wider role in civil society

    Depaul USA is an authoritative voice on homelessness, working in partnership with government, local authorities, the private sector, churches and other voluntary agencies. Together we achieve the best possible outcome for homeless people. Depaul USA strives to be open and accountable to staff, volunteers, service users and funders. We believe in justice for all – through influencing structural change in society and supporting individuals. We take a worldwide perspective and are committed to building global networks to support those affected by homelessness.

    Believing in rights and responsibilities

    Depaul USA believes that people have fundamental rights as humans and within the law. These rights must be upheld and safeguarded. Rights come with responsibilities and a duty to consider others. Rights and responsibilities extend equally to our organization, staff, volunteers and those affected by homelessness who use our services. Supporters and funders have a right to expect a consistently high level of service and integrity. We are committed to delivering it.
