The St. Louis Association of Community Organizations (SLACO) is a coalition of neighborhood associations in the St. Louis metro area. For 35 years SLACO has provided networking and learning opportunities through a signature annual conference and many other events. Sometimes SLACO engages in advocacy when neighborhoods identify a common cause. In addition, SLACO has partnered with developers to provide low- and moderate-income housing. In particular SLACO is active in the West End neighborhood, where it programs a community center.
