Start Here STL Resource Directory

What is the Start Here St. Louis Area Resource Directory? Originally created as a re-entry guide, this directory of resources is compiled by one volunteer in the St. Louis area, assisted by many partners in providing updated information throughout the year. The directory is constantly updated online, while the print version cannot be updated as frequently. Resources listed include housing, domestic violence, mental health services, and services for at risk populations such as LGBTQ, homeless, and seniors.
