Mission Statement

That Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, St. Louis Chapter, serves those affected by asthma and allergies through education, support and medical resources.

Description

Here in St. Louis, one in ten children deals with asthma on a daily basis. One in thirteen children take precautions with everything that goes in their mouth because they live with a food allergy. Many of the families of these children with asthma and allergies cannot afford the medicines to keep them healthy and safe. As a result, children miss school, lose social interaction time with friends, and start to fall behind.

That’s where AAFA-STL steps in. AAFA-STL provides a holistic asthma management program for low income children that provides not only asthma coaching, but also prescription assistance to help families afford expensive inhalers and allergy drugs. The organization also offers Healthy Home Assessments where trained staff inspect their homes to help identify triggers and help connect families to resources to improve their overall air quality.

AAFA-STL also partners with over 280 local schools to provide school nurses with nebulizers and asthma emergency equipment. This way, when an asthma emergency creeps up at school, it can be treated right then and there instead of sending a child home or to the ER.

The organization provides free asthma, allergy, and food allergy training throughout the community to day cares, schools, medical groups, and corporate events.

All of this to ensure children are living their lives without limits.
