Deaconess Foundation


In the spirit of our faith heritage, the mission of Deaconess Foundation is the improved health of the community and people of Eastern Missouri and Southern Illinois.


Deaconess Foundation envisions a community that values the health and well-being of all and gives priority attention to the most invisiblized. This community only thrives if the allocation of power and distribution of resources, benefits, opportunities and burdens are not predictable by, nor predicated on race.


As an institutional advocate focused on HEALTH JUSTICE and SOCIAL JUSTICE, Deaconess Foundation will orient its abundant relationships and resources in pursuit of liberation within the next seven generations.
