Heart of the Community Award:

The National Council of Jewish Women - St. Louis Chapter


Since 1895, the National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) has worked tirelessly to improve the lives of women, children and families through community service, advocacy, education and philanthropy in the St. Louis community. Five years ago, it moved to its current location at 295 N. Lindbergh, and has become a vital part of Creve Coeur. Through a variety of notable community service program and projects, the NCJW provides underserved populations without regard to race, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, age or disability. Its vital programs and projects include providing children with school items and clothing, offering micro-lending program for low-income women who may not otherwise have access to borrowing funds to further employment opportunities, proving support to women of all faiths to move forward after the loss of a spouse, and assisting low-income women and domestic violence survivors with guidance, life-skills training and clothing to enter or re-enter the work force – all at no cost to its beneficiaries. The National Council of Jewish Women’s exemplary commitment to community service and advocacy in Creve Coeur and the greater St. Louis region exemplified the Heart of the Community Award.
