At Beyond Housing we recognize the challenges that the rapid spread of COVID-19 has had and continues to have on members of our 24:1 Community. We must be mindful in this moment that low-income families are disproportionately affected by this crisis.
Since the crisis of this pandemic reached St. Louis, our phone lines have been ringing nonstop because of the deep trusting relationships we have built in this community for over a decade. Many residents have shared with us their concerns of wondering how they will make ends meet and how they are faced with tough decisions about prioritizing the things they need with what they can afford. By working together, WE can make an immediate difference in the lives of individuals impacted right here – the place we call home.
Please join Beyond Housing as we continue to meet families where they are. Your generosity during this trying time will help to provide resources like rent and utility assistance, grocery and gas gift cards, and child care assistance for parents struggling to manage the closure of public schools.
Right now, thousands of St. Louisans are afraid and hurting. Let’s come together and help each other when it’s needed most.
