Welcome Neighbor STL Programs

Welcome Neighbor STL has created a number of programs to assist our new American friends adapt to their new home. The programs we offer help to to fill the current needs of our refugees located here in St. Louis. We have created programs that allow our refugees to adapt better to American culture, while providing them with the skills and tools to help them make a meaningful income. We also work closely with many organizations in the St. Louis area to help fulfil as many of the urgent refugee needs that we can.

We have also expanded our organization to help with the needs of the homeless population in St. Louis. A group of our refugee cooks prepare meals every Sunday for the unhoused folks in St, Louis that are distributed by our parent organization St. Louis Teens Aid Refugees Today (START.) Our Community Center also acts as a Warming Center for those on the streets when the weather gets dangerously cold.
