New #HealSTL Office

$30,230 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 208 people in 48 months
Following the unrest in Ferguson, MO in August, St. Louis Alderman Antonio French founded a non-profit organization called #HealSTL and opened an office  at 9171 W. Florissant in "ground zero" of the unrest.


This office quickly became a vital community outreach office for several organizations. The ACLU and NAACP Legal Defense Fund held workshops on protestor rights. MERS Goodwill set up a satelite office inside the office to manage a youth jobs program that provided 100 jobs for young people from Ferguson and Dellwood, thanks to a generous grant from Emerson Electric. This office was also home to #HealSTL's voter registration efforts. #HealSTL has a goal of registering 2,000 new Ferguson voters before the April 2015 municipal election.

On Monday, November 24th, shortly after St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch announced that the grand jury decided not to indict the police officer who killed teenager Michael Brown, someone broke into and set fire to a business located in the same building as the #HealSTL office. The fire spread and eventually destroyed the entire building , including our office and everything inside it.

That office represented thousands of volunteer hours and thousands of dollars of donated items. But thank goodness, no staff or volunteers were injured.

We are disappointed. But we are not deterred. 

With your help, we will quickly rebuild and get back to work. Thank you for your support.
