Community Action Agency of St. Louis County
All services offered at CAASTLC start with a Family Intake, Assessment and Referral. During this process you will sit down one on one with a member of CAASTLC’s staff to discuss the challenges you are going through and what programs and services offered at CAASTLC that may be of assistance to you. If CAASTLC does not directly provide a service that is determined you need, a referral will be provided to another agency that provides that service.
Most of the programs that CAASTLC provides are targeted for low-income county residents. Income eligibility varies slightly for some programs. Click on eligibility requirements and documentation required for a complete list.
