The Problem
The Clinton Peabody neighborhood is a historic yet under resourced neighborhood in the 6th Ward of the City of St. Louis. Recently, residents have been plagued by a succession of issues, notably a pest infestation which adversely affects the health and well being of this community.

The St. Louis City Housing Authority is working on both short and long term solutions to permanently address structural issues to ensure Clinton Peabody families enjoy a standard of living we can all be proud of. In the meantime, the residents have taken on much of the responsibility to professionally sanitize their units and replace the many household items which were destroyed.

These properties are federally owned, therefore Ward 6 Capital Funds cannot be used to help resolve the issue.   The families live with extremely limited resources and the problem is taking a toll both emotionally and financially.

The Solution
A generous local foundation will match your donations 2 to 1.  These contributions will be used to purchase the necessary services, supplies and household items to help restore healthy living conditions. Please consider making a tax deductible donation to this important cause. 

Oversight
Contributions will be allocated by a committee of residents established with the assistance of the Alderman. The donations will be administered and distributed utilizing guidelines consistent with the mediation agreement between the St. Louis City Housing Authority and the Health Department.

I could not be more excited to report we met our goal, raising $15,000 to support short term recovery for our neighbors in Clinton Peabody. Thanks to a generous partnership with local business Bolt Innovations (thanks for the referral, International Institute), we are able to use your donations to order nearly 100 new beds and couches, as well as provide vouchers for replacing clothes and other items. With the remaining money, the Organization for Black Struggle will be providing grass roots organizing and leadership skills training to residents, complete with a stipend, child care, and a healthy snack at each session.

Thank you SO much, St. Louis. You really are amazing!

Hi , Donors! Thanks so much for your generous contributions. Residents have turned in their applications for short term assistance in and I'll keep you updated as we move through the list and provide such needed help to our neighbors. Organization for Black Struggle is also now on board to provide the community with grass roots organizing and leadership skills training as we more forward with long term planning for a much higher quality of life in the neighborhood.

We're also just about $1,600 shy of our goal. Would you share this page with anyone you think might pitch in a few dollars to get us across the finish line?

Thanks again,
Christine
