Welcome to the hawthorne society

The Hawthorne Society is Beyond Housing’s signature Donor Society. In 1981, Beyond Housing leased its first affordable rental home on a street called Hawthorne Place. And as we had hoped, the first family to live at 1432 Hawthorne Place didn’t just find affordable, quality housing – they eventually found success and went on to purchase their very own home.

Members of the Hawthorne Society are those who make it possible for Beyond Housing’s mission of helping entire communities become better places to live, to mean more than mere words.

Whether the work is rehabbing a vacant house for low-income families or helping us complete an economic development project, the funds donated to Beyond Housing are used to support our transformative work within the underserved North St. Louis municipalities who make up the Normandy Schools Collaborative.


In addition, members of the Hawthorne Society are considered influencers of Beyond Housing’s strategic direction, helping us build the long-term roadmap to improving the quality of life for our communities and families.

We invite you to consider joining the Hawthorne Society with a minimum contribution of $1,000 per year so that together we can rehabilitate whole neighborhoods and provide struggling families a chance to live in a thriving community with access to healthy food, affordable housing, economic opportunities, quality education and healthcare, just to name a few.
