Our speakers include:

Rep. Bruce Franks

Chris Krehemeyer – Beyond Housing

Maggie Lalor – SLACO

Tod Swanstrom – Community Builders of St. Louis

Keynote Speaker:
Chris Krehmeyer – Beyond Housing

Beyond Housing’s approach brings lasting results because we listen to the community, act as stewards of their vision, and bring together partners to support that vision and generate results.

Our truly holistic approach was formed by the voice of community members taking part in hundreds of local meetings. Success is fueled by the collective impact generated by the participation of dozens of nonprofits, businesses, churches, government officials, and agencies from within and outside the community.

Come learn what others are doing to build the society we so desperately need and what you can do to help.

Visit with 30+ advocacy groups and organizations and network with other concerned citizens.
