As a Board member and volunteer at St. Louis HELP, I've seen firsthand how this simple program can make significant differences in the lives of the uninsured of the greater St. Louis community. Program participants come to HELP after worrying and stressing over their health situation, expecting more bureaucratic obstacles. They leave relieved and comforted with useful medical equipment and aids for themselves and their caregivers - all at no cost, no deposit, and no hassle!
