Support health and healing on Give STL Day

Today is the day! You can support health + healing at Places for People by participating in Give STL Day. Give STL Day, powered by St. Louis Community Foundation, is a 24-hour day of online giving to support more than 1,000 non-profit organizations in the St. Louis region.

All donations to Places for People on Give STL Day will support health + healing for people living with severe mental illness and substance use disorders.

The past year has tested all of us. It has not been easy, but Places for People has been on the front line of behavioral health services. As the pandemic enters its second year, our community needs access to quality behavioral health services more than ever.

Your support helps makes that access possible.

Maximize your gift during Give STL Day by making a donation during a Power Hour! During these hour stretches, your donation will be given a boost. Power Hours will be held at:

  • 3-4 p.m.
  • 6-7 p.m.
  • 10-11 p.m.

Make a Give STL Day donation now.

At Places for People, we provide a human approach to health + healing, working with more than 2,500 people each year who are living with mental illness and substance use concerns.

Each wellness journey looks different. For example, one of our treatment teams has served “Duncan” for more than six years. Duncan has lived on the streets of St. Louis for more than 30 years. By building rapport and earning trust, the ACT-1 team was able to help Duncan escape the cold this winter by going to a motel, and is collaborating with the V.A. to help him find an apartment.

We invite you to watch this video to hear more about this incredible story:

There will be highs and there will be lows, and we don’t stop working with them when they’re at their worst, and we don’t stop working with them when they’re at their best, we just always work with them.

Tim McKay, ACT-1 Team Leader

Your gift makes a difference!

Your support of Places for People on Give STL Day helps provide support of health + healing for the more than 2,500 people in our community living with mental illness and substance use disorders each year.

Here are examples of how your donation can make an impact.

$10 – 1 medication organizer
A medication organizer improves medication compliance and helps foster a greater sense of independence and confidence.

$25 – 1 co-pay for a doctor’s visit
This removes a potential barrier to care, allowing people to attend doctor’s visits without worrying about how to cover the co-pay.

$100 – 1 Night in a Hotel or Motel
To focus on recovery, it’s important to have a place to rest at night.

$250 – 1 psychiatric evaluation
A psychiatric evaluation is one of the first steps in the recovery journey. It helps establish medication needs and informs the individualized treatment plan for each person served by Places for People.
