For 35 years, St. Patrick Center has provided opportunities for self-sufficiency and dignity to people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. This includes programs and services to veterans experiencing homelessness. Twenty percent of the clients St. Patrick Center serves are veterans and last year we assisted nearly 1,200 veterans, and over 100 of their dependent children.
They focus on housing and employment services for St. Louis's veteran population. St. Patrick's Center works with veterans on recovery and behavioral health services too. The employment programs assist veterans with job readiness training, job placement, and personal financial planning services.
