 EAST SAINT LOUIS, IL
House of Miles East St. Louis (HOME)  is a non-profit 501(c)3 on a mission to restore the childhood home of musician extraordinaire, Miles Davis!

The property is located at 1701 Kansas Ave., East St. Louis, IL.  It has been vacant for several years and is in need of extensive repair.  We plan this endeavor and completion for 2016.

We feel with the renovation of this home, this will be a sanctioned place to socialize, tour, and develop artistic/cultural skills, which will be useful throughout many lives.

HOME  is seeking assistance for material, labor, and/or financial assistance to help us solidify this project. Your tax-deductible donation will bring us closer to this goal!
