St. Louis Missouri transitional housing programs and shelters.

Families that are facing homelessness, or that need an affordable place to live, can turn to numerous non-profit agencies and government organizations in the St. Louis region. The centers provide residents with access to emergency shelters, transitional housing programs, and importantly support from case managers.

The number one goal of any one of these organizations is to help people find a new, permanent home to live in over the long term. The organizations have information on regional low income apartments and homes, and also government programs such as section 8 housing vouchers. Also inquire into financial assistance for paying your deposit or first months rent. While clients look for and find something more permanent, you and your family will be provided a place to stay.

Some of the other services provided by the organizations include self-sufficiency, job training, and career counseling. In order to prevent a future eviction and homelessness, the Saint Louis agencies know it is important to gain financial stability.
