M:STL- Delta Center Development Associate VISTA
In St. Charles, Missouri there are over 399,182 people in the
community, of which 6.2% (26,346) have some form of disability and
4.5% (21,156) live in poverty. While working with people with
disabilities in the community, Delta Center has come to realize
that the cost of medication, accessible equipment, and
transportation are expensive and expenses that many in the
disability community cannot afford. Many of them are living on a
fixed income mainly through SSI benefits. Delta Center connects
them to community resources through grants, assist with budget
planning, skills training and in-home support. Through this VISTA
position, we will focus on fund development to ensure continued
ongoing support to the families we serve. Further help on this page
