Through a variety of services, childcare, food & clothing assistance, job training, youth and teen programs and Senior Companions, Kingdom House helps thousands yearly to achieve self-sufficiency and gain economic independence. Since 1902, Kingdom House has been transforming the lives of individuals in St. Louis.
Our Mission: Kingdom House helps people to achieve better lives.
Our Vision: We dream of a day when Kingdom House leads the whole community to serve the poorest of the poor with a presence in every neighborhood where we are needed, inspiring volunteers and donors to make CHANGE happen. As a result, tens of thousands will say, "my life is better because of Kingdom House".
Active low income Seniors age 55 and older can volunteer to visit homebound frail elderly or provide respite to family caregivers in their community. This is a friendly visitor program and a volunteer does NOT perform homemaker or personal care services.
Volunteers receive a reimbursement stipend of $2.65 per hour along with mileage , sick and vacation time. This service is provided at no cost to the family.
This program is funded through donations and grants. Contributions determine the level of service that is provided to the community and donations are greatly appreciated.
