DeSales Community Development is a community-based non-profit formed in 1976 to serve the Fox Park and Tower Grove East neighborhoods in the City of St. Louis. Governed by a board of directors and employing a full-time professional staff, DeSales promotes the ongoing growth of neighborhoods as healthy, diverse urban communities with quality housing. DeSales Community Development partners with other organizations to build a network of community-based recreation programs through our SouthSide Rec program.
SouthSide Rec (SSR) is a free to low-cost youth and adult program that aims to promote physical activity and advance social equity at the neighborhood level. Our goal is to ensure that people in St. Louis have access to youth sports, recreation, and extra-curricular activities regardless of where they go to school or their ability to pay. Some of our partners include: The St. Louis City Soccer Club, Cardinals Care, wreSTL, and Thrive Outside.
