Our second Jeans BeCause recipient in December was St. Vincent Home for Children.
St. Vincent Home for Children was founded in 1850 following a cholera epidemic and fire, both of which occurred the previous year an which left many St. Louis children orphaned. Over the years, St. Vincent Home has transitioned to meet the changing needs of children in the area. No longer an orphanage, St. Vincent Home is a Residential Treatment Center that provides treatment for at-risk youth. For over 169 years, St. Vincent Home for Children has worked hand in hand with the St. Louis community to provide high quality, professional treatment and residential services to meet the changing needs of struggling children and families. Today, St. Vincent provides treatment for at-risk youth through four key programs: LifeFOCUS, LifePATHS, EACHFocus, and LifeRECOVER.
