About Emmaus

Emmaus Homes is a faith-based, nonprofit organization providing around the clock services to more than 275 adults with developmental disabilities in the St. Louis metropolitan area. Our mission is to help our clients live as independently as possible in the community of their choice. For nearly 125 years, Emmaus Homes has been recognized as a leader in the health and human services industry by creating and implementing best practices and standards for adults with developmental disabilities.

For every dollar of Emmaus provides, only 85 cents is covered by government funding. Emmaus relies on a mix of support from individuals, businesses, and community partners to help cover the remaining 15 cents. This adds up to over $2.5 million a year. Your support benefits nearly 300 adults with developmental disabilities, right here in our community, by helping Emmaus to provide a variety of care and support. This includes medical and dental care, housing, recreational and social activities, education opportunities, and so much more.
