Why: The Whitaker Urban Evening Series draws the community together through cultural expression. Every Thursday night, crowds gather to hear artists such as Ralph Butler and Javier Mendoza fill St. Louis Place Park with their toe-tapping talents. However, this event is more than entertainment; it’s about connection and education. The series draws community partners from across the area and an audience from more than 50 zip codes introducing the region to the growth and revival of North St. Louis.

Every night, attendees learn about important community services and educational opportunities as well as have the chance to participate in on-site health screenings. Kids come for the fun, games and child-friendly performers such as face-painters, caricature artists and jugglers. Overall, the series delivers something North City hasn’t experienced in more than 30 years – a secure, high-quality community event.

About: Grace Hill Settlement House and Grace Hill Neighborhood Health Centers, Inc. combined are one of the ten largest not-for-profit organizations in St. Louis. We have served St. Louis for more than 100 years delivering a broad range of both health and social services to St. Louis’s lowest income families. Our services include child care, youth activities, job training/acquisition/retention, life skills, parenting, elder care, as well as primary health care provided through five community health centers operating in nine neighborhoods. Affiliated with the Episcopal Diocese of Missouri, Grace Hill believes in increasing self-sufficiency, improving the capacity of individuals and stabilizing families.
