Missouri Veterans Endeavor (MOVE-STL) is a community for Veterans experiencing homelessness and their families. The key to MOVE-STL's success begins with Veterans living among their peers in a secure and sober environment with on-site counseling services available 24/7.
Once on site, each family member is assigned a Social Worker for Clinical Case Management services. Together they create and implement a well-defined individualized action plan to address specific obstacles and goals.
This unique formula allows Veterans and their families to succeed together. MOVE-STL empowers struggling Veterans to rediscover a sense of purpose and optimism and to realize their goal of independent living.
At MOVE-STL, we are determined to be an anti-racist organization. We welcome all Veterans. We recognize that Veterans do not come from one specific race or origin, but rather they come from a wide demographic of racial and cultural differences. Currently, 66 percent of the Veterans served identify as Black or African American. When a Veteran comes in for an assessment at intake, we ask about their cultural considerations to ensure we are serving that individual Veteran to the best of our capabilities. We’re committed to making the greater St. Louis area a better place to live, work and thrive for all. We build community partnerships with those organizations and individuals that also work toward the same goal for the greater St. Louis area.
Our Veterans may receive care such as:
We are a 21-unit apartment site, housing up to 40 Veterans or Veteran families.
We coordinate and/or provide transportation to our Veterans and their dependents.
We may provide direct financial assistance to our Veterans who encounter unforeseen expenses.
We offer individual, group, couples, and family therapy.
Child Care Assistance
We may assist our Veterans with childcare expenses.
Clinical Case Management
Each Veteran meets with their Social Worker at least bi-weekly to engage in Clinical Case Management services.
