"Missouri Veterans Endeavor (MOVE-STL) is a non-profit that provides long-term supportive housing and comprehensive services to veterans and their family members. MOVE-STL has provided housing and services to homeless veterans and their families since 2012.
MOVE-STL is a small apartment complex located at Natural Bridge and 170. The site has 7 triplexes with 21, 2 bedroom units. Currently, MOVE-STL houses 35 veterans, 16 dependents, and 9 children on our site and in a few apartments in the community. We provide a wide range of services including case management, employment assistance, job training, sobriety support, counseling, attachment to community resources and permanent housing.
Since opening our doors, we have housed over 120 veterans, connected over 400 veterans with resources in the community, and have helped 50 veterans obtain employment. Our goals for our veterans are to help them address any of their individual barriers, including finding meaningful employment, enhancing their overall quality of life, maintaining sobriety, connecting with family and their community, maintaining their mental and physical health regimens, and transitioning from our site into permanent housing in the community.
While in our care, approximately 80% of our clients with substance abuse issues were able to maintain their sobriety; 95% of our employable veterans have been able to obtain employment; 85% of our veterans have increased their income; and 90% of our clients have transitioned into permanent housing in the community."
