Currently, more than 110,000 people in Missouri are living with Alzheimer’s disease, and over 314,000 family and friends are providing care. Serving 86 counties in Missouri and 10 in Illinois, the Alzheimer’s Association Greater Missouri Chapter provides education and support to all those facing Alzheimer’s and other dementias throughout the community, including those living with the disease, caregivers, health care professionals and families. The Association is also committed to advocating for the needs and rights of those facing Alzheimer’s disease and advancing critical research toward methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure.

For over 165 years, Marygrove has been a place where children, youth and families in need have found hope and healing. Marygrove provides treatment and support to young people struggling with the often debilitating emotional and behavioral issues resulting from abuse, neglect and other trauma. Marygrove transforms hundreds of lives each year through its comprehensive continuum of residential and community based programs, including therapeutic residential treatment and foster care, transitional and independent living and crisis care.

Our purpose is to help keep Missouri and Illinois families, seniors, and the physically disabled safe in the cold winter months in 25 counties, including the City of St. Louis. In 18 years, so far, we’ve impacted the quality of life for more than 475,000 people. 100% of all public donations are used strictly for utility assistance, as our volunteer board underwrites all administrative costs.
Being without a primary heating source is a health and safety issue. Seniors especially are making decisions between their medication, groceries and their utilities. We also help with budget billing plans, so that people in need can manage their utilities better. There are energy efficiency and weatherization opportunities through some of our 35 consortium partners.
If someone needs help with utilities reach out to us at Heatupstlouis.org.
