At Beyond Housing, we are committed to promoting Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity throughout our organization and culture. We strive to understand and appreciate the individuality of every employee and create a better place to work for all. We nurture a culture where everyone positively acknowledges equity through action and is aware, understanding, and appreciative of diversity.
Our vision is to go beyond simple tolerance and fully embrace the things that make each person unique. We recognize that our employees’ differences support our ability to advance equity for the communities we serve. Further, we understand that equity is critical to the fulfillment of our mission to help entire communities become better places to live.
Our interns have worked alongside staff members to create and administer programs, complete research, work with youth, and build community. Beyond Housing partners with local universities and staff trained to supervise master’s level practicums.
Interested candidates must be 18 years of age or older to apply.

Beyond Housing seeks to be accountable in our work, especially to communities of color, to hold the principles of social justice, equal rights, and equitable opportunity and access at the core of everything we do.
Beyond Housing recognizes that racism is a barrier to the effective delivery of our mission and acknowledges that racism and privilege are present in our communities and institutions. No organization can consider themselves to be immune from these forces, including Beyond Housing. For that reason, we recognize the need to 1) become aware of the manifestations of racism and privilege in our own lives, in the systems we create and support, and in our culture; 2) work collaboratively within our communities to alleviate the consequences of historic racism; 3) actively work as an organization to honor and support each other’s differences; and 4) incorporate anti-biased service delivery throughout every department and level at our organization.
Racism is dehumanizing to everyone it touches. Beyond Housing believes that creating an antiracist world where all people are afforded equitable opportunity to fulfill their dreams and ambitions and live their best lives is in the best interest of us all, and critical to the future and success of the greater St. Louis region.
Beyond Housing also believes that resistance to racism requires resistance to all other forms of social inequity and oppression, as well. To build stronger communities, we are dedicated to removing barriers to success for all families and individuals regardless of race, religion, background, sexual orientation, color, ethnicity, age, ability, country of origin, or gender. We are committed to building diversity within our institution, promoting an understanding of social problems among our staff, and tipping long-standing scales of injustice toward greater equity in the communities we serve.
Beyond Housing shall follow the spirit and intent of all federal, state, and local employment law and is committed to equal employment opportunity. Beyond Housing is committed to providing equal opportunity for all employees and applicants without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, marital status, sexual orientation, disability, or genetic information or any other characteristic protected under federal, state, or local law. Each person is evaluated on the basis of personal skill and merit. Beyond Housing’s policy regarding equal employment opportunity applies to all aspects of employment, including recruitment, hiring, job assignments, promotions, working conditions, scheduling, benefits, wage and salary administration, disciplinary action, termination, and social, educational and recreational programs. All managers and supervisors are responsible for the full implementation of the Equal Employment Opportunity policy.

We’re thrilled to announce that Ameren is pledging $1 million to support Beyond Housing’s Once and for All, an effort to invest in the St.
For the last several months, I have been preaching from the book of regional self-interest about the need to invest in our collective future. I firmly believe in the truth that our region is only as strong as the communities within it, and that if we are going to change the trajectory of St. Louis we need to invest in the communities that have historically been left behind.
