The Saint Louis Association of Community Organizations

Welcome to SLACO!

The St. Louis Association of Community Organizations, commonly known as SLACO by its friends, has been addressing a broad range of issues related to strengthening neighborhoods throughout its 45-year history.

SLACO was established in the late 1970’s and incorporated as a not-for-profit corporation in 1978. SLACO is a coalition of neighborhood associations in the metropolitan area. Each neighborhood group addresses the needs and concerns of its residents. While the depth and severity of problems facing neighborhoods vary, many challenges are shared by almost all of our neighborhoods.

Since 2014, SLACO has embraced the Forward Through Ferguson report. As a connecting group for neighborhoods all over the region, we are positioned to drive the conversation on community policing, racial equity, and providing a real partner for change.
