Beyond Housing


Beyond Housing is a nationally recognized, comprehensive community development organization dedicated to transforming the St. Louis region’s under-resourced communities to create a stronger, more equitable, and prosperous St. Louis for all. Their work brings civic leaders, targeted nonprofits, corporate partners, and residents together to create meaningful and lasting change.

Deaconess Foundation provides funding to Beyond Housing through the Responsive Grant portfolio to support their efforts in interacting with the 24:1 community and its leaders. The 24:1 Community is an area comprised of multiple municipalities within the Normandy school footprint in North St. Louis County. Beyond Housing works with local officials and residents of the Normandy Schools Collaborative to address the many challenges resulting from decades of disinvestment and decline in the area. The 24:1 Community is united under one vision for neighborly communities, invested families, and successful businesses.
