IMPACT Strategies is beginning the interior build-out of 10 additional bedrooms for Covenant House Missouri’s short-term shelter program on its main campus in St. Louis.
Covenant House Missouri is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving homeless, runaway and at-risk youth between the ages of 16 to 24 in the city of St. Louis.
The project will create additional bedrooms, moving the short-term housing floor from 10 double-occupancy bedrooms to 20 single-occupancy bedrooms. By providing individual bedrooms for all young people staying in the short-term program, the organization can elevate its ability to be COVID-19 responsive.
The renovations will include additional restrooms, laundry rooms, offices and common spaces.
The $750,000 project was funded in part by grants from the Division of Homeless Services and the City of St. Louis Emergency Solutions Grants. Oculus, Inc. is the architect of record.
