Our Impact


In fiscal year 2018, the Society assisted over 344,000 people and provided more than $8.4 million in direct aid to those in need in the St. Louis metropolitan area. More than 3,600 trained volunteers provided an estimated 343,000 hours of volunteer person-to-person and thrift store service in 2018. One of the oldest and most well-respected charities in St. Louis, the Society is a proud member of the United Way of Greater St. Louis. As a Catholic lay organization, an essential part of the Society’s work is to maintain the confidentiality and dignity of those being served, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or age.
