Beyond Housing CEO Chris Krehmeyer writes why addressing poverty makes all of St. Louis richer
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.
Our work brings civic leaders, targeted nonprofits, corporate partners, and residents together to create meaningful and lasting change.
Transforming under-resourced communities requires a comprehensive range of programs addressing the needs of individuals and families and the greater community.
Our Once and for All effort is focused on bringing our work to scale to create greater impact for the St. Louis region. The effort launched with a series of letters and videos called “Dear Lou” to begin a conversation on how to finally move our region forward and the need to invest in our under-resourced communities—once and for all.

To be clear, St. Louis is not America’s comeback city at the moment. If we can get enough of the right heads together on the same page, however, then it’s not out of the realm of possibility in the not-too-distant future. I believe the story of how it could come to be has a distinct possibility of one day becoming national news.
