Host A Benefit Event

Why host a benefit event?

Half of renters in the St. Louis region are cost burdened: they spend a disproportionate amount of their income on rent, leaving little left for childcare, medical needs, and education. Often, they may live in overcrowded, unsafe, and unhealthy conditions.

When people spend too much of their income on housing, it hurts the future of our community. Not only is the economy weakened, but it leaves the future of children in our community uncertain.

But through homeownership:

  • A child will be more likely to graduate high school, succeed socially, and become homeowners themselves someday.
  • A parent will be more likely to maintain employment, seek further educational opportunities, and save money for their family’s future.
  • A neighborhood will benefit through increased civic engagement, tax revenue, and consumer spending.
