The educational philosophy at Shaw Avenue Children's Center is demonstrated by the following:
We include a diverse group of families and staff.
Our smaller overall enrollment size and our small child to teacher ratios are comfortable for very young children.
Our encouraging learning environment is formed by our knowledge of individual child development, as opposed to a school model based on age requirements.
We promote the growth of children's emotional security and confidence as a foundation for their mental and physical growth.
Teams of teachers model the decision-making and cooperation that we expect children to learn.
The practice of our Peace Table process confirms that young children have the ability to reach mutually agreeable solutions.

PlantingScience was launched with a start-up grant from National Science Foundation.The program is of no cost for science teachers. The program supports teachers as one means of tackling our acute need for improved science literacy on a local and national scale.
Recognizing that science and innovation are critical in ensuring a prosperous and sustainable future, the BSA developed PlantingScience as a direct response to a challenge from The National Academies to become leaders in supporting inquiry-based Science, Math, Engineering and Technology Education (STEM). PlantingScience is designed to facilitate three core concepts recognized by the National Research Council to facilitate learning: hands-on, inquiry-based science; peer-to-peer dialog and team learning; mentorship support from topical experts.
Person by Person, as People for People, we make good choices to help people make their own. This is the belief that drives our programming of empowerment.

Located at 1126 S. Kingshighway in St. Louis, MO, Little Bit of Haven provides a home away from home for families traveling to St. Louis from afar with a seriously ill or injured family member requiring a hospital stay. Since St. Louis is recognized as having some of the best doctors in the nation, it is not uncommon for families to travel hundreds or thousands of miles away for the best care. We offer a 6 bedroom, 3 story home, available 24 hours a day, within walking distance to St. Louis Children's and Barnes Jewish Hospital. Allowing family members to stay close by enables them to communicate with doctors as well as be there for their loved one at any time of day. Being so close is just as important as the actual medical care they receive. When families are faced with a medical crisis, the last thing they should have to think about is where they can afford to stay, where they will do their laundry, where they will get their next meal or where they can lay their heads. A Little Bit of Haven seeks to provide just that, rest and peace, at little or sometimes no cost, depending on the situation. We are part of the Acts 1:8 Mission Society which is a 501(c)3 and recognized service organization under the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. For more information please e-mail us at [email protected]

What can one person do? Buying a blessing basket and encouraging your friends to follow in your philanthropic foot steps goes further toward ending the cycle of poverty than you might imagine.
As a certified nonprofit organization we have only ONE mission: lift the artisans we serve out of poverty. We pay our artisans a Prosperity Wage, which is significantly beyond fair trade, in fact more than anyone else in the world.
Our mission is achieved when the artisan uses their Prosperity Wages to start businesses and graduate from our program into a life of substainable financial independence.
