What We Do

Mental Wellness & Spiritual Programs

ECM's programs support our mission of providing support, hope and healing to children in the juvenile justice system in St. Louis. Some of our Spiritual Programming include:

  • A weekly non-denominational worship service tailored for the children; for example, the service might include faith-based music by “rap” artists or live performances of liturgical dance
  • Spiritual formation groups, such as studying sacred texts suited to the educational level of the youth
  • Individual spiritual guidance, offering faith-based models for living
  • Faith Hip Hop Concerts, providing entertainment and inspiration
  • "Hope & Healing" peer support groups that focus on issues related to grief and loss
  • Birthday parties
  • Holiday goodie bags
