The Scottish Rite Cathedral, at 3627 Lindell Boulevard in St. Louis, Missouri, is a historic, significant building that was designed by architect William B. Ittner. It was completed in 1924. "A fine example of neo Classic style, the building has a frontage of 235 feet and is approached by a broad flight of steps. Its auditorium, which seats 3000 persons, is notable because no posts obstruct the view. Features are an extremely wide proscenium and a fine organ. The granite and limestone structure was erected at a cost of $2,000,000."

The Ancient & Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry is, above all else, an educational institution. We seek not to teach men the truth but, instead, a way to the truth. Each must find the truth for himself. The Degrees of the Scottish Rite do not teach specific lessons. Rather, they give parallel examples from earlier cultures, raise questions, and challenge us to think. Freemasonry is a journey of self-discovery and self-development. We seek only to be a guide, teaching the common ground of various philosophical and religious approaches to belief, in order that men might be more united in their standards of right and wrong and in their understanding of the reality of God.

YWCA Metro St. Louis is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. We believe women and their families achieve their full potential and well-being in a world without discrimination.
The world’s oldest and largest women’s organization, YWCA was founded in England in 1855. The organization that became YWCA Metro St. Louis began in 1904 as an effort to provide housing and job training for rural women who had come to the city to work at the World’s Fair. In 1905, the organization was incorporated with YWCA. For decades, it has been an autonomous, accredited affiliate of YWCA USA, broadening its focus to meet the changing needs of women.

Employment Connection was founded in 1977 after a study by the Young Lawyers Division of the Bar Association of Metropolitan Saint Louis (BAMSL) discovered that employed ex-offenders were 66% less likely to return to incarceration. Our agency immediately began work to reduce recidivism.
In 1980, Employment Connection became a full United Way member agency and expanded its programs beyond ex-offenders to serve U.S. veterans, homeless individuals and families, individuals with behavioral health disorders, and at-risk youth. Today Employment Connection assists over 1,500 individuals who have barriers to self-sufficiency every year.
