In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, St. Louis County gathered a team of experts to craft the region’s strategy. At the direction of the COVID-19 Regional Response Team, led by Dr. Jason Purnell, United 4 Children has been requested to oversee childcare for the region.

Childcare is Essential

Thank you for your service


Here at United 4 Children, we make children a priority. How do we do that? By providing children with healthy meals, creating safe places to learn and play and providing social-emotional and inclusive services for children with special needs or challenging behaviors. We provide high-quality support to childcare and afterschool programs so that families can feel at ease knowing their children, regardless of ability, are receiving the best care possible and have every opportunity to succeed.
