Our 
Story

Recently, the Department of Mental Health invited LWP to participate in its opioid initiative along with four other grassroots organizations. All of the participating organizations serve majority Black communities in North St. Louis City. The opioid initiative addresses racial inequities in opioid overdose deaths in Black communities.

 

Our community work has allowed us to develop partnerships with the Crush Coalition, the Baden Community Coalition, Prevent Ed, Queen of Peace, the City of St. Louis Drug Courts, our state Representatives, Baden Business District, Missouri Foundation of Health, Missouri Institute for Mental Health at UMSL, and Flourish St. Louis.  

Programming and community engagement are at the core of our strategy. We invest heavily in supporting the development of integrated solutions and delivering reliable tools to those who need them most. Discover more about our innovative campaigns below and get in touch to stay up to date regarding our latest efforts.

At Living With Purpose, our top priority is to achieve results, and we know that our success depends on the quality of our campaigns and partnerships. Our approach is to build strategic networks and promote programs that will help advance our work. Learn more about the causes we’re passionate about and get in touch with us to see how you can get involved.
