Better Family Life, Inc.
Established in 1983, Better Family Life (BFL) is a 501(C)3 not-for-profit community development corporation that works with individuals and families to help promote positive and innovative changes within the St. Louis metropolitan area. Each year BFL serves more than 50,000 children and adults, including the underemployed, unemployed and skill-deficient. BFL promotes positive changes in individuals and families in the St. Louis metropolitan area to help them become self-sufficient through a variety of programs - financial literacy, housing, workforce development, educational, youth, social, cultural and artistic. The largest Black history mural in Missouri is housed at the Better Family Life Cultural, Educational and Business Center. Begun in late 2013 and finished September 2016, the Art and Empowerment mural depicts the rich cultural heritage of Africa and the African Diaspora. It engages the viewer in the history of the struggles, accomplishments, and resilience of the peoples of Africa and the African Diaspora, and the relevance of this information to American life and history."
