SHO is proud to sponsor these local agencies who provide support for families dealing with medical hardships.
HavenHouse St. Louis

We believe every person deserves a healthy life, the best medical treatment, and affordable lodging — even when treatment takes them away from home. That’s why it’s been our mission since 2005 to provide the comfort of home and a community of support to patients and their families who must travel to St. Louis for medical care.

At HavenHouse, we’ve built a stress-free environment where patients and their families can retreat and find relief from medical-related anxiety. Our visiting families pay reduced rates for lodging, receive free, nourishing meals, and have caring staff support every step of the way.

Since our founding, we’ve helped over 105,000 people of all ages find comfort when they needed it most. We continue to serve an average of 79 families monthly from our temporary home in the DoubleTree by Hilton in Westport Plaza.

HavenHouse is thankful to the SHO Foundation for their continued support of our families!

Annie’s Hope

Since 1998, the mission of Annie’s Hope–The Bereavement Center for Kids has been to provide comprehensive support services to children, teens, and their families who are grieving the death of someone significant. They work to improve the health and well-being of grieving children ages 3-18 throughout the St. Louis area by teaching them effective coping skills and facilitating their emotional healing.

At least 4,000 St. Louis-area kids will be newly bereaved due to a sibling’s or parent’s death every year. Factor in children grieving the death of a friend or grandparent, and the number of children in crisis is astounding. Each year the staff of Annie’s Hope strive to reach more grieving children whose mental/physical health and academic success are at risk, helping them gain an understanding of death and grief that allows them to adjust to the circumstances, move forward on their grief journeys, and live lives of joy, positivity and hopefulness.

Annie’s Hope offers 10 programs free of charge to over 2,900 children and families each year:

  • Family Support Groups
  • School Support Groups
  • Summer Camps
  • Teen Retreats
  • Horizons – Anticipatory Grief Program for children of terminally-ill patients
  • Speaker’s Institute
  • Annual Hope and Healing Gathering
  • Grief Referral Service
  • Family Social Events
  • Community Resource Library
