FOCUS Gateway City is on the near south side of downtown St. Louis. We are proud to face the needs of our neighbors by distributing food, clothing, and warm meals on Sundays and Wednesdays throughout the month.
We seek to provide Orthodox Christians with opportunities to shine forth the love of Christ through volunteering at the Center, in McKinley Heights and in surrounding neighborhoods.
Our goal is to be a community where any person in need can find rest for their souls and resources to help meet their needs.
