What We Do

More than a place…it’s a process.

The Haven of Grace empowers young women to overcome obstacles and achieve stability. Through community resources, coaching and a family-like support network, young mothers achieve self-sufficiency and secure a bright, healthy future for themselves and their children.



Each journey begins with a decision and a commitment.

Self-sufficient & Successful Part of St. Louis Community

Success is that full-circle moment when former residents begin to give back to The Haven of Grace by serving as mentors, volunteers and program advisors. An inspiring and service-oriented group of young women, The Haven of Grace alumnae actively live out the mission of The Haven of Grace every day.
