In writing about great organizations in St Louis Beyond Housing is probably the best. They have been in business for years and fully realize that community development must be comprehensive and is hard work.
They are focused on Pagedale and the Normandy School District. Their projects include housing development and rehab,homeownership training, foreclosure prevention,and economic development. They have brought a movie theatre, grocery store, and bank to the area. They have created the 24:1 imitative which is bringing the smaller communities together to meet common goals.
Their leader is Chris Krehmeyer a talented, passionate, and caring individual. I am proud of their work
