Communities Creating Opportunity – Nightlife
builds trusting and enduring relationships that encourage and support young people. BBBS brings together the most important adults – parents, mentors, teachers, social service providers – and builds on the power of these relationships to truly change the trajectory of young peoples’ lives, putting them on a better path and thereby, improving the quality of life in our communities.
Human Trafficking Awareness
is a collaborative effort addressing human trafficking awareness and teens at-risk of being trafficked. The program is based on a national curriculum, I AM, and is being piloted by several organizations throughout St. Louis.
Voices of Women
is a community organization designed to unite women so that their voices are heard fairly in the larger community. They teach cooking and nutrition to mothers and children through a four week community cooking contest.
Northside Youth and Senior Service Center
enhances the quality of life of the elderly, children, and families in their community by offering basic needs like a meals on wheels program for low income, African-American women in North City.
At the heart of the foundation, we value efforts to advance equity, opportunity, & human dignity. These efforts often address the following topics, though Racial Equity is the overarching, all-encompassing priority for each organization or project we fund.
“Funding neighborhood work fosters systemic change by addressing the root causes of poverty and oppression. It fosters the confidence within individuals to dream while simultaneously creating access to the tools and resources needed to achieve those dreams.” — IWF Executive Summary, 2019
