Edward Jones Makes Major Investment in the 24:1 Community


Beyond Housing is thrilled to announce that Edward Jones has committed $500,000 to support our ongoing work in the 24:1 Community, which comprises the 24 municipalities within the Normandy Schools Collaborative in North St. Louis County.

“Something special is happening here in the 24:1—this is a community that’s on the rise,” said Beyond Housing President and CEO, Chris Krehmeyer. “We’ve always believed in our model of community building. But having companies like Edward Jones, Emerson, Express Scripts, Boeing, and others invest in the work being done here is another vote of confidence. There’s a lot that’s been learned here that can be applied to strengthen other communities, and our entire region.”

See how the support of companies like Edward Jones are making the 24:1 Community and the St. Louis region stronger for all.

Beyond Housing is a nationally recognized community development organization that builds successful communities through a comprehensive approach focusing on six key areas—education, housing, health, employment readiness and access, economic development, and personal finance.
