LOVEtheLOU was developed out of a love for the City of St. Louis. We have gone through a number of phases, since we were founded in 2009. During the constant process of growth and development, we have always been driven to see our city restored through transforming actions. We are proud of what has happened in our city through LOVEtheLOU, and we are excited about what will continue to happen as we grow and develop.

STL | LIFT
Founded in 2015, STL | LIFT is a youth mentoring program that is offered by LOVEtheLOU, and it lifts North St. Louis teens out of a poverty mindset by showing them that their lives have an incredible amount of value. The program offers work for our teens during the summer, and we continue with mentorship throughout the rest of the year.
