Beyond Housing was recognized by Mutual of America Financial Group for its Family Engagement Liaisons program during a special luncheon and award presentation at the Chase Park Plaza Hotel in St. Louis on February 13.
Family Engagement Liaisons (FEL) was named a Merit Finalist award recipient in the Mutual of America 2019 Community Partnership Award competition, which received entries from organizations nationwide.
The program was launched by Beyond Housing, a Missouri-based community development organization, to address the out-of-school barriers threatening students' success. The families in this under-resourced area are served by the Normandy Schools Collaborative, a struggling public school district that was taken over by the state and stripped of its accreditation in 2013. FEL provides services and support to help overcome barriers to academic and social successes, including supplemental food, uniforms and clothing, essential school supplies, referrals to healthcare services, and rent and utility assistance programs.
