WEST ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-Adults living with serious mental illnesses are getting good jobs as part of a team of workers keeping the Central West End clean and maintained. Started back in 2011, the workers pick up litter, empty trash cans, and keep the streets neat and tidy.
The work crews are made up of adults from Independence Center, a community-based rehabilitation program located on Forest Park Avenue. The workers get a boost in confidence and morale, while also making some money.
