Beyond Housing CEO Chris Krehmeyer writes why addressing poverty makes all of St. Louis richer
Together with our partners and people like you, we are creating real transformation within the many under-resourced communities in North St. Louis County—for the benefit of our entire region. But this change cannot happen without the support of donors like you.
Your support helps single mothers become homeowners, strengthen families to lift themselves out of poverty, create new affordable housing, foster the success of small businesses, reverse decades of decline, and prove that things can always change if enough people want them to.
Please join us in creating lasting change for our region and a stronger, more equitable, and prosperous St. Louis—once and for all.
Sometimes, the best way to help your hometown is by wearing a t-shirt. All proceeds go toward creating a stronger, more equitable, and prosperous St. Louis—once and for all.

To be clear, St. Louis is not America’s comeback city at the moment. If we can get enough of the right heads together on the same page, however, then it’s not out of the realm of possibility in the not-too-distant future. I believe the story of how it could come to be has a distinct possibility of one day becoming national news.
