William Siedhoff is our featured Ageless- Remarkable St. Louisan of the day! 


William Siedhoff, 75, is the former director of Missouri’s Division of Family Services, where he oversaw a 6,000-employee agency delivering critical services statewide. As Human Services Director for the City of St. Louis, he implemented a 10-Year Plan to End Chronic Homelessness that was hailed as a national model for moving homeless people into permanent housing.

After retiring in 2014, he led a successful tax campaign to fund needed services that allow older adults to age in place in their own homes. Today, he chairs the Senior Service Fund Board and the Advisory Board of the St. Louis Crisis Nursery, helping young and old. Twenty board memberships keep him busy, but as he says, he’s familiar with the problems and committed to making a difference in people’s lives. He continues to provide volunteer and philanthropic support to the Saint Louis Crisis Nursery, the St. Louis Zoo and the Botanical Gardens.
