About Rise

At Rise, we believe that all St. Louis area neighborhoods should be safe, vibrant, and friendly.

  • Creating Homes

    Rise is a nonprofit housing developer, development consultant and predevelopment lender.

  • Building Strong Partners

    Rise provides capacity-building technical assistance and training to other nonprofit community development organizations, government agencies and institutions in the St. Louis metropolitan area.

  • Policy and Advocacy

    Rise also plays a leadership role in community development policy and affordable housing advocacy in the region as well as throughout Missouri and Illinois.

  • Sharing Information

    Rise is both a local and national data partner, working to improve the understanding of neighborhood change and create data-driven solutions to local problems.

Quality housing for everyone

Rise provides affordable housing for the hard-working residents of the St. Louis region who make 60% or less of the Area Median Income. 

We firmly believe that everyone deserves clean, safe affordable housing. People work hard to provide for a better life for themselves and their families, which is why Rise has provided over 5,000 homes for area residents.

These residents are people from all walks of life: teachers, police officers, EMTs, bank tellers, healthcare workers, and everyone who we see as the backbone of our community. They are our friends and neighbors. They should not have to sacrifice when it comes to providing safe homes for their families.
