Thank you to everyone who attended The Longest Night memorial service at Centenary United Methodist Church on December 21, which is the longest night of the year. This year, 24 people who died homeless in St. Louis were remembered during the service and candlelight vigil with “lights of hope,” as Rev. Kathleen Wilder called them.
The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services announced this morning that Missouri was one of eight states selected from a field of 24 to participate in the Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) demonstration program. Places for People will be the Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic for St. Louis City.
Places for People Executive Director Joe Yancey received the Silver Key Award from Mental Health America of Eastern Missouri at the Snow Ball gala on December 9, 2016.
