We Believe…

All children are worthy of love and understanding.

Meet Our Chaplains

We make God visible to the children we serve.

Ministry of Presence Probably the most important aspect of the chaplains' time with the children is what we call “the ministry of presence”. Our chaplains walk the halls; visit the units; play cards, board games, or video games; or watch TV with the youth. The non-anxious presence of our chaplains reassures the teens that their spiritual well-being is being looked after.

Did you know that at age 17, youth can be certified and tried as adults? But even at 17, they are still kids. That's why our dedicated chaplains have started visiting youth who have been certified as adults.

It is important for these children to not feel alone. It is important for us to be there.

Happy Valentines Day to our volunteers and donors who help make it possible for us to remind the children in the juvenile justice system in St. Louis that they are loved! Special thanks to the Sunday School students and teachers at St. Peter's Episcopal Church, Ladue for making treat bags to share with the children at the City and County Detention Centers and the Division of Youth Services.
