In order for our work to be sustainable and integrated within existing regional work, community partners are crucial to our process. HomeGrown StL works alongside our Anchor Partners to provide leadership and support of various community initiatives across the region. We choose partners who are experts in their sector, but more than this are able to bring their expertise in their respective fields to the regional work that is being done in and around St. Louis. Anchor Partners commit to attending HomeGrown StL planning and networking meetings, supporting grant development, and further the strategic direction of HomeGrown StL’s mission. Interested in becoming a HomeGrown StL Anchor Partner?
