Celebrating Success Through
the Campaign For The Path Ahead

Our transformative vision for Missouri’s children and families has come to life through Great Circle’s Campaign For The Path Ahead!

Great Circle stands as one of Missouri’s premier nonprofit providers of behavioral health services, but we are called to do more. Our bold vision pushes us to meet the needs of our children, families and community for the future.

We strive daily to provide every individual and family access to urgently needed and preventive behavioral health care, and responsive care as needs arise.

A New Regional Family Engagement Center: In St. Louis, one part of that vision is now complete – the transformation of our 22-acre campus in Webster Groves into a Regional Family Engagement Center. Building on a tradition of service to children and families that stretches back more than 180 years, Great Circle now stands well-equipped to meet today’s needs – with the flexibility and resources needed to meet the needs for future generations.

For Children & Families: We are a place to help all families when they face difficult times or struggle with circumstances beyond their control. Through the Campaign For The Path Ahead, we have expanded our ability to engage with more families, both on campus and in the community. We do so because we know that good overall health required good mental health, and that when effective treatment isn’t available to those who need it, our community is weakened.

Thanks to Our Donors: Thanks to the hundreds of individuals, companies and foundations that shared our vision, and made Great Circle’s $21.5 million Campaign For The Path Ahead a tremendous success!

“My son was diagnosed with autism when he was 3. He couldn’t speak. He climbed on top of furniture. He became harder and harder to control. When I learned about Great Circle’s day school for kids with autism, I was almost without hope. Lucas was enrolled and things began to change. He started using picture communication and is toilet trained. He has even started to speak words. You saved my son’s life—and mine."
- Michael, Lucas’ dad

“Great Circle is truly a blessing for our family. Having a school for our son with teachers who understand his needs, are trained to respond to them, and most importantly, are willing to accept him and continue to work with him every day, is something for which our family is tremendously grateful.”
- Mike and Elizabeth

“I am very glad you did not give up on me, from that very first month on until we built a friendship and bond. Thank you so much for all of the time you took to spend time and talk with me.“
