Who We Are

We are committed to being a part of ending homelessness in Saint Louis. The group was created to engage motivated young individuals to further the agency’s mission: walking with people facing homelessness on their journey to lifelong stability.

We spread awareness about PPCS to the community via service projects, fundraisers, and events. PPCS is a nonprofit organization that provides housing and supportive services to those who are homeless, especially those who experience mental illness or live with HIV.

Our goal is to be ambassadors who spread awareness of homelessness issues in the Saint Louis community by networking and raising funds, all while having fun!
