Lydia’s House: Lydia’s House works in faith to end domestic violence by being a place of healing and a voice of hope for abused women and their children. Transitional housing is a residency program that includes support services such as advocacy, child care and job assistance. Transitional housing is usually provided after a crisis, and residents can stay in the program from six months to two years. In the case of domestic violence victims, transitional housing is the step between emergency shelters and permanent housing. Residents are required to establish goals, meet program requirements (such as confidentiality, in the case of Lydia’s House) and work towards self-sufficiency.

The Little Bit Foundation: is committed to helping disadvantaged school children by creating a positive impact for personal growth, increasing self-esteem and encouraging a more focused and active learning environment. It does this by building strong relationships and partnering closely with St. Louis schools. The Little Bit Foundation (Little Bit) was born in 2001 out of a small request from an inner-city teacher and has grown into an organization serving 6,000 elementary and middle school students in 20 St. Louis area schools. Ninety to 100 percent of the students in Little Bit schools are at or near the poverty level. Our vision is the break down the barriers of poverty on a child's ability to enter the classroom confident and ready to learn. For more information visit www.thelittlebitfoundation.org.
