Housing is the foundation for personal, educational, career/employment and financial goal attainment. When our neighbors have stable, safe and adequate housing, our entire community benefits. Community Response is committed to creating opportunities to stabilize communities through rehabilitating vacant and abandoned properties, building new construction in distressed neighborhoods, empowering residents to become homeowners, and providing supported housing for our neighbors that require our help. Community Response is a Saint Louis County CHDO (Community Housing Development Organization), and a National Community Stabilization Trust nonprofit partner.
The mission of our “Fostering Homeownership” program is to promote homeownership for low and moderate income families and to stabilize communities, through rehabilitating vacant and abandoned properties.
Our supportive housing program has helped us assist over 400 former foster youth with gaining the knowledge, skills and supports needed to prepare for their exit from foster care. We DO NOT currently have an active contract to provide these services. Please check here periodically for updates on our availability for our Independent Living Program.
