East Side Heart & Home Family Center has been an active presence in East St. Louis, Illinois since its founding in the fall of 1993. Our mission is to invite individuals from varied backgrounds to be catalysts for change by providing them with opportunities to work side-by-side with each other on programs and projects that cultivate positive changes in their lives and their communities.

We have two different programs–a family program and a housing program–where staff members and volunteers work alongside East St. Louis residents. At East Side Heart & Home Family Center, the focus has always been, and continues to be, on people. We believe that each and every person has gifts to contribute and we hope to foster an environment where people can come together and use their individual gifts for the betterment of our city and our world. It is our hope that each of us can be empowered to become agents of social change in our lives and in our communities.
