Community Voices

Here we’ll be featuring voices from the community–we’ll be talking to our partners and to others impacted by the crisis in the St. Louis region.

We’ve featured a few of the newest videos below.  To see all the Community Voices videos, visit our YouTube channel.

In this series of videos, Chris Krehmeyer, CEO and President, and Linda Ingram, Director, Foreclosure Prevention Services, talk about what the new housing plan means for St. Louis.

The American Dream

As we face these tough economic times, we began to wonder how the economy affects the American Dream. For this project we gave St. Louis University students Flip cameras so they could talk to their friends and peers about their visions of the American Dream.

You can watch the full Living St. Louis segment by producer Patrick Murphy below:
