Places for People’s total operating budget is under $10 million. Roughly 49% of this comes from service review through the Missouri Department of Mental Health and Medicaid contracts. Another 37% of the operating comes from federal grants, followed by 8% from private, unrestricted grants and fundraising. The remaining 6% comes from local government funding and income from rental properties as well as interest. Specifically, the Saint Louis Mental Health Board, a taxing entity, provides substantial funding for outreach, engagement and services for homeless clients.
Places for People engages more than 1,500 people in ongoing program services and outreaches nearly 260 people providing assessment, triage services and referrals to other service providers.

Easy answer--no, core services for both agencies remain the same. Long answer--the merger combines the resources of two leading mental health agencies to better serve a population in need. This was the first voluntary merger in Missouri of two behavioral health providers and our goal was to strengthen our position in a changing healthcare environment. More importantly, the merger allows more opportunities for growth, implementation and evaluation of good practices.
Places for People serves clients in St. Louis City and St. Louis County.
Places for People partners with adults living with serious mental health disorders, frequently with co-occurring disorders such as HIV/AIDS or addiction. We also partner with families who have young children at-risk for behavioral health problems and who would benefit from parenting education and support, young adults with challenging behavioral health disorders, experiencing juvenile delinquency, truancy, and poor school performance, and immigrants and refugees who are survivors of torture and trauma. Our last population involves outreach to people who are homeless living with a mental illness and/or substance abuse disorders.
