We walk with people facing homelessness on their journey to lifelong stability.

For over 40 years our values have stood as a testament to the thousands of volunteers, supporters, and alumni from St. Louis and beyond who have come to consider PPCS a part of their community. Peter & Paul Community Services, an ecumenical agency, provides housing and supportive services to persons who are homeless, especially those who experience mental illness or live with HIV.

By offering those we serve hope, empowerment, compassion, hospitality, and a chance for independence, together we can help solve homelessness for our community.

Our Core Values

Our Core Values Guide Everything We Do


Peter & Paul Community Services believes that our culture sets us apart from other nonprofit agencies. It defines us. It’s how we do business.


Together, we are:

  • Person-Centered: grounding our work in compassion and respect for the individual while instilling hope and motivation to achieve our greatest potential 
  • Integrity-focused: accountability in job performance and in following strong ethical principles of honesty, transparency, and professionalism
  • Diverse: building and uplifting a community of different life experiences, faiths, ethnicities, social backgrounds, races, genders, and sexual orientations
  • Welcoming: hospitable and friendly reception of all with a spirit of gratitude
  • Collaborative: emphasizing communication and teamwork agency wide and with community partners

These five core values embody our culture. They keep us aligned and help us make decisions about everything we do from who we hire to the quality of care we provide to clients.
