RWFDC was founded in 1994 to strengthen and stabilize the city's north corridor which includes 10 neighborhoods and over 40,000 residents. We have completed well over 100 homes via new construction or rehab, and have served as an anchor in the community for over 20 years. The RWFDC did some research on the youth in our area. Based on various community meetings and surveys distributed, it was determined that there was a need for the Baden Enrichment Center. Since the conception of the center we have served over 600 youth within a year of existence.

The Food boxes have really help me and my family get by during this pandemic. I appreciate the fact that even when the City opened they still deliver to us and help us. That shows they actually care and not just doing it for notoriety. - J. Miller, Program Participant Parent

Mommy & Me began with diaper donations from the St Louis area diaper Bank and we understood that covid-19 had caused more financial hardship in our community than any other so we wanted to do a little more than to give away just diapers through the generosity of heartwarming people we were able to do that. It was such a joy to be able to bless young mothers and grandparents with Mommy and Me gift bags that included diapers wipes cereal snacks baby food books and more with help from our donors!
