Profile:
As a place-based community organization, LinkStL, Inc. focuses on linking people to opportunities. Most importantly, LinkStL’s goal is to build capacity within the neighborhood it serves so that the community will continue to flourish as a place of choice for housing, businesses, schools, organizations, and fun! LinkStL draws on a community-based “village of support” to execute this work.

LinkStL was founded in February 2015 as a direct response to expressed needs in the Hyde Park neighborhood. Hyde Park is a historic neighborhood in North St. Louis that has experienced disinvestment. Its residents now experience isolation that eliminates a sense of community and pride of place. As a response to these issues, local stakeholders have come together to form LinkStL as a grassroots, community organizing entity that builds on Hyde Park’s greatest asset: the people of the community.

LinkStL works to connect neighbors to the neighborhood through collaboration, advocacy, engagement, evaluation, and fun! LinkStL aims to link a “village” of support around individuals and families that desire opportunities for a better tomorrow. The organization is working to deliver the following outcomes to the Hyde Park neighborhood:

  • Residents will be better connected to opportunities as a result of the community built network.
  • Residents will be active leaders in the community.
  • Neighbors will meet in a quarterly basis to discuss, plan, and model how to better work together.
  • Families in the community will be better connected to supportive services that are tailored to their family’s needs for positive outcomes and changes in their family’s future.
