Depaul USA St. Louis supports people experiencing homelessness. Our vision is that everyone has a place to call home and a stake in the community. In St. Louis, Project MORE and PLUS provide over 70 units of permanent supportive housing to individuals who were chronically homeless. In October 2017, Lazare House opened to house 15 chronically homeless individuals between the age of 18 to 24 years old.
We encourage participants to dress up like your favorite Wizard of Oz Character. Food will be provided after the run/walk in Tower Grove Park in South St. Louis City.
