Habitat for Business


Habitat for Business strives to revitalize neighborhoods with new economic activity and job growth, and to serve as business role models for youth as well as other citizens.

About the Program

Organized in 2006 in partnership with the Cook School, Habitat for Neighborhood Business is a volunteer 501(c)3 organization that develops retail and service business centers in economically distressed neighborhoods. The initial focus has been the underserved communities of North St. Louis City. 

Habitat for Neighborhood Business extends opportunities to residents to be trained and mentored for their own businesses.  It provides economic incentives to start a business in their own community with the belief that residents will support their neighbor’s business and begin to create wealth within the community.
