AAFA St. Louis Chapter
The AAFA St. Louis Chapter serves the city of St. Louis and the counties of St. Louis, St. Charles, and Jefferson. AAFA St. Louis also serves Madison and St. Clair counties in Illinois. AAFA-STL provides children with asthma and allergies life-saving medications, equipment, education, and support. The flagship program, BREATH (formerly Project Concern) fulfills that need.
