Our Approach

Why it matters

One in five children in the St. Louis region lives in poverty. This increases to two in five for Black or Brown children. Deaconess envisions a community that values the health and well-being of all children and gives priority attention to the most vulnerable. This community only thrives if the allocation of power and distribution of resources, benefits, opportunities and burdens are not predictable by, nor predicated on race.
