Who We Are

Our Work
St. Patrick Center is the largest provider of homeless services in Missouri, with 22 programs serving more than 9.000 persons annually who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. We help individuals and families move from homelessness to independence in a measurable, cost-effective manner.

Our Mission
St. Patrick Center provides opportunities for self-sufficiency and dignity to persons who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Individuals achieve permanent, positive changes in their lives through affordable housing, sound mental health, employment and financial stability.

Our Spirituality Statement
In solidarity with the traditional social teaching of the Catholic Church, St. Patrick Center embraces the attitude of Jesus as servant to the poor. We espouse a spirituality that places our clients at the center of all decisions. We will work with our clients in a holistic manner: honoring their dignity and human rights; listening to each individual; providing for emotional, physical and spiritual needs; and creating an environment that encourages all to be the best they can be.
