Christmas Wonderland

First Step Back Home was founded by Lake Saint Louis resident Paul Kruse. It started with Kruse’s first ministry to serve over-the-road truck drivers, and expanded to become a 501(c)(3) charity that has assisted more than 5,000 homeless to become self-supporting by helping to provide lodging, food, clothing, jobs, and transportation.
