NCJW-St. Louis Section Community Service Projects
Each year, more than 500 NCJW volunteers log over 8,000 hours to touch the lives of more than 4,000 St. Louisans. Since 1895, NCJW’s pioneering projects have grown into vital social programs and self-sustaining agencies. What have we done? View our retrospective here.
Our current focus includes the following projects:
The Back-To-School! Store
, providing under-served children with clothing and supplies they need to start the school year prepared. We have served nearly 10,000 children since 2001.
Kids Community Closet, literally a closet with emergency clothing in 11 schools and a food pantry. More than 4,000 children have access.
Healing Hearts Bank, a non-traditional micro-lending program for victims of domestic violence who may not otherwise have funds for emergency and other needs. If you are a Healing Hearts Bank borrower and would like to make a payment, please use the button below.
Wife-Widow-Woman, a support group available to women of all faiths to manage one of life’s most difficult transitions. New groups form twice a year, and meet twice a month for six months.
Project Renewal is designed to empower underserved women by providing clothing, education, resources and the tools they need to succeed at work and home.
CONNECT is a membership program designed for 5th-8th grade girls. Through a series of bi-monthly programs, the young women plan community service projects that directly assist NCJW’s programs, and learn about advocacy.
