Our Belief

Courage—not boundaries—should define the potential of individuals and the character of communities. In order to bring out the true character of our communities, St. Louis Strong creates inclusive spaces for individuals to honestly share and advocate for policy solutions that address and realize our shared fears and aspirations. By doing so we're developing a united community with unbounded potential.

We believe courage creates community.


Our Mission

St. Louis Strong is a non-partisan nonprofit that seeks to create a healthier sense of community and promote a stronger economy by guiding residents through building their own future.

We seek to lift the Gateway region higher.

    Starting with the Micro — Building Relationships Across STL

    Over our last 2.5 years in St. Louis, my wife (Maria) and I have learned a great deal about St. Louis's longstanding issues, from the Mike Brown shooting and its aftermath in Ferguson to the lack of interaction between folks separated by race, geography, and socioeconomic status. There is a dire lack of relationships across these historic divides (in St. Louis and beyond), and until we get out of our bubbles and get to know our neighbors in different walks of life, things aren't likely to get better. This year, let's bridge these historic divides together. If you'll be in the STL area on Saturday, January 21st, please join Maria and me as we get to know our neighbors and support small businesses in STL's Walnut Park East neighborhood. We'll visit two great restaurants, help build their online profiles on Yelp and Google, and clean up a neighborhood park. Should be a great opportunity to meet our neighbors and serve our community. We'd be honored if you joined us. The itinerary is below: 10.30am – 11.30am — Brunch at Debbie's Delights (CASH ONLY)5033 Riverview Blvd., St. Louis, MO 11.30am – 12.30pm — Park Clean-Up at Gregory J. Carter Park5800 Lillian Ave, St. Louis, MO(Trash bags provided; bring work gloves if you have them.) ~12.45pm — Tripe City5124 Natural Bridge Road, St. Louis, MO   All the best,Michael
