Our Mission

The mission of Helping Hands of St. Louis is to provide hot nutritious meals, groceries, clothing, hot showers and other social services for all who come to our doors. We strive to acknowledge the dignity of each and every person by assisting with a smile, an embrace, or a material or a spiritual need.

Our Philosophy

We welcome everyone who comes to our doors for a warm meal.We never ask questions of eligibility, religious affiliation or residency.  We want to provide a refuge for those who have no place to go, who are hungry and looking for someone with whom to talk. We try to stress the importance of the person and the need for human dignity and respect.
