At St. Joseph Housing Initiative, we know that people need safe, peaceful home environments to thrive and owning one’s home is a major step forward in the path of financial independence. Where there are stable homes, there are healthy, harmonious neighborhoods. But neighborhoods are nothing without neighbors. When we help our neighbors begin a path toward homeownership, we all benefit. When we share in the work of home-building, we share in a greater, stronger St. Louis.

We Love Our Volunteers! : On Saturday August 29th an amazing crew of volunteers BUILT A FENCE!  Representing St. Stephen Protomartyr’s Holy Name Society and the First Presbyterian Church of Kirkwood, this crackerjack group came together and not only whipped up a new fence for our Mt. Pleasant house, they did a major yard clear out and clean up.  We are so grateful to these friends and supporters for the gift they have given to a future homeowner family.
