Beyond Housing along with several other partners helped create an accessible home for Logan who was severely injured in a car accident before the holidays.
In 1975, Beyond Housing launched with a focus on affordable and quality housing, because we understood that home matters. In 1981, we leased our very first rental home on a street called Hawthorne Place. The family at 1432 Hawthorne Place had a stable and safe place to live, and this is where they took their first steps toward thriving instead of just surviving.
Through our work, we have learned that while a home is an important place to shelter people and nurture dreams, transformational change cannot be achieved by addressing only one area on its own. As we had hoped, the family at 1432 Hawthorne Place went on to purchase their very own home. In the process, they and hundreds of other families helped shape our holistic model for community development that strengthens individuals, improves the physical environment, and creates change at the systems level.
The Hawthorne Society is Beyond Housing’s flagship major gift society, made up of generous supporters who make minimum gifts of $1,000 annually. Members of the Hawthorne Society make it possible to achieve Beyond Housing’s mission of creating a stronger, more equitable, and prosperous St. Louis – Once and for All.
Whether the work is providing matching funds for students’ college savings or completing an economic development project, Beyond Housing uses your contributions to support our transformative work within the North St. Louis County communities that make up the Normandy Schools Collaborative.
