The grant is estimated to impact 18-20 client homes.

St. Andrew’s meets the needs of the aging population in the St. Louis area and focuses on enhancing the lives of each older adult by providing a full range of well-being services and secure living environments to older adults over the age of 60.

The HBA is a local trade association of nearly 600 member firms representing the residential construction industry. The Home Builders Charitable Foundation, the HBA’s charitable arm, is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing housing assistance to people or organizations with special shelter needs.
