Mission Statement

Peter & Paul Community Services is an ecumenical human service agency committed to providing immediate and transitional housing and supportive services to persons who are homeless, especially those who experience mental illness or live with HIV or AIDS

Description

??Emergency Shelter: Serves up to 60 men nightly, 365 days per year. The basic needs of shelter, food, showers, laundry, lockers and staff support are available nightly. Most importantly, the shelter provides a warm, safe, caring alternative to living on the street. ??Meals Program: Provides an evening meal 14 days each month for residents of the shelter as well as those in the surrounding neighborhood living on limited or fixed incomes. Each month, more than 300 volunteers from area churches and service organizations help prepare and serve food to as many as 230 men, women and children each evening. ??Transitional Housing Program: Provides transitional housing and assists up to 10 homeless men in setting goals, learning living skills, establishing a regular income and savings plan, with the goal of moving into independent living. The Transitional Housing Program also includes the Arts Collaborative, a program in conjunction with community artists that allows clients to see themselves in a new and different light to help them determine what they are capable of through the process and production of dimensional art, writings, photography, etc. ??Benedict Joseph Labre Center: A residential care center (licensed through the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services and Department of Mental Health), which serves as a transitional facility for up to 15 men who are homeless and mentally ill. Psychiatric nursing, occupational therapy and case management services are provided in addition to basic housing needs. ??Positive Directions Program: Provides housing and community-based supportive services to more than 20 homeless men and women who live with HIV/AIDS, mental illness, and/or substance abuse issues. ??Club Cathedral: A service provided in partnership with Christ Church Cathedral providing a simple breakfast for more than 200 persons who are homeless each weekday. Professional staff members help clients to access and link to resources in the community.
