M:STL – DeSales CD Youth Programs VISTA
DeSales Community Development is a community-based non-profit organization that promotes revitalization, affordable housing and good property management in neighborhoods in and near the City of St. Louis. DeSales was founded in 1976 to serve the Fox Park and Tower Grove East neighborhoods. Though most of its history, DeSales has served these neighborhoods exclusively, gaining a reputation as a leader and innovator among local community development organizations. In recent years the housing corporation has sought to apply its experience in other neighborhoods by building relationships with other community-based non-profits. With its strategic involvement in both property development and management, DeSales has emphasized an entrepreneurial approach in advancing its mission. These lines of business have helped to build a diversified revenue structure based on income earned from activities that are consistent with its mission. DeSales has also been a leader in building collaborative relationships with other community organizations.
