Saint Martha’s is base camp when you’re climbing Everest.
Saint Martha’s is a St. Louis nonprofit program that provides shelter, resources, and compassionate care for women and children experiencing domestic violence. Since opening on May 1, 1983, we’ve helped over 7,000 women and their children safely leave their abusers and reclaim their lives.
