In 1999, Grace Hill Settlement House and the U.S. Small Business Administration formed a public/private partnership to create the Grace Hill Women’s Business Center.

The mission of Grace Hill Settlement House is to provide opportunities for individuals, families and communities to be stronger, healthier and more self-reliant.

Grace Hill Settlement House works in partnership with neighbors and stakeholders to identify the social and economic challenges in North and South St. Louis, and establish families and communities that are strong and self-sustaining.  Through multiple hub-like locations, thousands of St. Louis residents are impacted each year by the multitude of resources and services that Grace Hill Settlement House offers which include early childhood, youth and family supports, aging and special needs, and community and economic development.

The Grace Hill Women’s Business Center is central to the Grace Hill mission, which is to develop the skills of residents, and to create opportunities for their personal advancement and for the economic well-being of their community.
