MESSAGE TO THE NETWORK

This summer HomeGrown STL has been working on several projects to build regional capacity to better serve black boys and young men in St. Louis city and county. We are in the process of finalizing the HomeGrown STL 2016 Census Report. This data aims to inform community members, agencies, service providers, and others who are interested in current programming and resources available to young black males.
