    The Recreation Council of Greater St. Louis offers an after school/extended day voucher program for residents living in St. Louis County. This voucher program enables working families to obtain for their son or daughter, ages 13-21, after school services which will meet their unique family after school care needs. Families can choose between, or a combination of, in-home, out-of-home, and/or an organized after school-program services. The funding assists the family to address a portion of the costs of their after-school services.

  • United4Children

    We assist families in locating quality inclusive programs and work with the program staff to assure the best care possible. The more we learn about children’s development, the more we know how important it is to intervene sooner rather than later when a child has a developmental delay, disability or other special need including challenging behavior.
