It houses a community-based behavioral health clinic that assists individuals with their mental health, substance use recovery, home care, and primary care needs. The facility will serve as a hub in service to an estimated 2000 residents, school children, and families per year across all programs, advancing Hi- Tech Charities’ mission to serve urban and rural communities, providing healthcare, employment training, housing assistance, social services, and various community economic development programs that keep healthy as well as empower individuals, families, businesses, and communities. In addition, the expanded facility will serve as a beacon of hope and resource for individuals and families.


Hi-Tech Charities started in 1998 as a grassroots community education enrichment program in the same Hamilton Heights neighborhood at St. Augustine Catholic Church. During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Hi-Tech Charities secured funding to provide primary care, behavioral health, and substance recovery services both in Metro St. Louis Area, and rural Missouri Counties of Jefferson, St. Francios, Ste. Genevieve, and Washingtonwith our rural office in City of Irondale, Washington County, Missouri.Hi-Tech Charities also responded to the call for in-person school-based mental health services in varied school districts and charter schools across St. Louis. Additionally, Hi-Tech Charities supported widespread vaccination education programs and preventive care services by allocating funding received to cover benefits for uninsured individuals through its integrated care partnerships. Finally, Hi-Tech Charities has partnered with other local service organizations to provide kits for personal care to unhoused citizens and the homeless.
