Message From Our CEO

Down Arrow

For over 2,000 individuals, their first step on the path to possible starts at Guardian Angel Settlement Association. Guardian Angel has provided a hand-­up, not a hand-­out; hope, not just help for over 150 years. We walk alongside each individual and connect them to what they need -­-­ not tell them what they need to do. We ask questions about how we can support and what they want to accomplish rather than provide answers. We help people explore possibilities rather than be limited by improbabilities. Our focus is on potential, not circumstance.

Operating on the settlement house philosophy of neighbors helping neighbors, we serve individuals and families in communities across St. Louis City. In many communities, 30% of households live below the poverty line and unemployment is over three times the Missouri average. These areas include Gravois Park, Benton Park, Marine Villa, Kosciusko, Soulard, Tower Grove East, McKinley Heights, Fox Park, Compton Heights, LaSalle Park, the Gate District… and many more.

I invite you to learn more about Guardian Angel, and how you could become engaged in our important work – as a volunteer, a donor, a future employee – or as someone that’s ready to take the first step on the path to possible with the support from one of our many programs.

Jessica Brandon, President and Chief Executive Officer
