Emerson Continues Investment in the 24:1 Community in North St. Louis County


In 2016, Emerson committed $500,000 over five years to support the work of Beyond Housing in the 24:1 Community—which comprises the 24 municipalities within the Normandy Schools Collaborative in North St. Louis County.

“This investment from Emerson, along with other recent gifts from Edward Jones, Express Scripts, Boeing, Anthem, and Citi shows that corporations are taking notice of the success we’re achieving here in the 24:1 Community,” said Beyond Housing President and CEO[DJ1] [TM2]  Chris Krehmeyer. “It’s a sign of confidence that our unique approach to community building is not only working—it’s vital to the success of the St. Louis region as a whole.”

See how the support of companies like Emerson 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.
