Our Programs | Our Stories
Places for People fulfills its mission to "provide caring, effective services to help those with the greatest challenges recover from mental illness and associated chronic illnesses” by identifying people whose needs are chronically underserved in the City of St. Louis and St. Louis County.
The people we serve typically experience complex, multiple needs, including mental disorders, homelessness, trauma, medical disorders, substance abuse disorders. The people we serve often have unique needs that no other provider can properly and/or completely address.
The people we serve range in age from preschool to seniors, and we work individually with each to determine strengths, weaknesses, goals, and challenges.
Places for People offers a wide array of programs and services, addressing the needs of the most vulnerable and chronically underserved people in the community. In all our programs, staff partner with clients to form individualized recovery plans and determine how best to utilize the agency's resources. Our programs are innovative, evidence-based, and have been endorsed as models by the Missouri Department of Mental Health (DMH) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
