Give Help

Invest in People

You never know when someone you love will need help

The people we serve are your neighbors, your friends – maybe even someone in your own family. That’s why we NEED YOUR HELP!

2020 has hit us hard in several ways:

HSS has lost all funding from United Way of Greater St. Louis due to the change in their funding priorities
Cost of Loss – $213,000

Community Day Training Services were not allowed to operate from March – September per state mandate due to COVID-19
Cost of Loss – $48,642

Major fundraising events such as our Shine Your Light Gala, Trivia Night, and the annual Celebration Banquet have been canceled
Cost of Loss – $99,000

Counseling reduction in demand for services due to stay at home order for COVID-19
Cost of Loss – $43,226

The loss of this funding means we are at a critical point. To continue providing the vital services to Monroe County that we have provided for the past 47 years, we need YOUR help now more than ever.

Choose to Invest in People and make a difference in someone’s life with a gift to HSS.
