What is Epworth Children & Family Services?
For over 150 years, Epworth has provided services to benefit individuals in need. The ultimate goal of all our services is for children, youth and families to achieve self-sufficiency with dignity. Our team of volunteers, donors, and staff experts make a difference in the lives of over 10,000 individuals each year. Epworth’s unconditional commitment and innovative services help children, youth and families move toward self-sufficiency by focusing on health, housing, employment, and education. Epworth operated three St. Louis campuses: University City, Normandy, and Webster Groves.  Check out the variety of ways people from the Salem community serve at Epworth.
