EVICTION PREVENTION

Thousands of St. Louis area residents are at risk for eviction due to loss of job or wages during the pandemic. Partners around the region are stepping up to inform renters about their rights and to offer legal services to fight eviction.

The RRT mailed 4,645 postcards about the CDC declaration to the top nine census tracts most at risk of evictions in St. Louis City and St. Louis County.

OUR VISION

We envision a Greater St. Louis region that responds collaboratively, equitably, and effectively to the needs of our most impacted neighbors and communities in the context of the immediate COVID-19 pandemic and the long-standing pandemic of systemic racism.

We evolve through these crises by undertaking new approaches to partnership and advancing changes in values, relationships, and structures that remove race as a predictor of people’s life outcomes.
