UnhousedSTL is an all-volunteer, 100% community-funded grassroots organization focused on advocacy and service to unhoused and housing insecure communities in St. Louis.
We started out to create awareness about homelessness and dispel misinformation about people experiencing homelessness. Through those efforts, St. Louis activists and community members came together to work on solutions to address the immediate needs of people living outside. The result was the formation of outreach teams that take food, hygiene kits and other supplies directly to unhoused communities as well as monthly community giveaway events at two locations --
South St. Louis and Wellston.
Embracing the principle that Housing is a Human Right, UnhousedSTL works in the philosophy of until. We know that what unhoused people need is housing. But until they get housing, we try to equip them with basic necessities. We also continue our advocacy by sharing important national and local news and policy decisions that impact the homelessness issue.
