LifeWise STL

LifeWise STL

The mission of LifeWise STL is to help individuals and families achieve economic well-being by providing high-impact, relationship-based programming and by addressing systemic barriers to their success.

LifeWise STL uses a model that is based on educational programming fused with personalized and supportive coaching. This evolution led us to choose LifeWise STL as our name, which conveys what we are all about — helping people at every age live wisely.

Help serve at LifeWise Back-to-School Event

Since 2012, LifeWise STL and Guardian Angel Settlement Association have hosted a back-to-school event at our neighborhood school, Peabody Elementary. We distribute new shoes, backpacks and school supplies to the families each organization serves throughout the year.


Volunteers are needed (throughout the week of August 10-15) to prep the assembly space, assemble the backpacks, package backpacks and shoes according to family unit, and “run” the packages from our building to families’ cars. Have fun and help kids to start the school year off right at this Back-to-School event!
