ARCHS’ Programs Expand Through New Funding

ARCHS has recently received grants from the City of Saint Louis, Herbert A. and Adrian W. Woods Foundation, Lutheran Foundation of St. Louis, and HealthCare USA that will add a combined value of $54,744 towards ARCHS’ education and social service programs.

The City of Saint Louis awarded ARCHS $31,744 to support its Juvenile Justice Mentoring Program through the city’s 2013 Public Safety Proposition S Youth at Risk Crime Prevention Fund.  ARCHS’ Juvenile Justice Mentoring Program provides adult mentors to juvenile offenders associated with the Missouri Division of Youth Services.

The Herbert A. and Adrian W. Woods Foundation provided ARCHS with $10,000 to support the After School for All Partnership for St. Louis (ASAP), a community effort to expand access to, and increase the quality of, after school programs that annually serve more than 3,000 students.

The Lutheran Foundation of St. Louis awarded ARCHS with $8,000 to provide strategic management services to St. Louis Alliance for Reentry (STAR) as it helps strengthen the region’s network of more than 300 organizations that serve and support ex-offenders.

HealthCare USA provided ARCHS with $5,000 to help expand Kids Vision for Life, which provides free eye screenings to more than 12,000 children in grades K-6 at Saint Louis Public Schools and other St. Louis area schools.

ARCHS designs, manages, and evaluates 14 education and social service programs that annually serve more than 100,000 St. Louisans.
