Join Us In Creating Welcoming Homes...

We are a nonprofit in the St. Louis area here to help answer “what’s next?” for adults with Intellectual / Developmental Disabilities (I/DD). In our region alone, hundreds of people with disabilities are waiting to leave institutions, substandard housing, nursing homes, or homes of an aging parents. Your support means they have access to a safe, affordable neighborhood home of their own.

Answering What’s Next

Parents and caregivers tell us that they are always thinking, “what’s next?”. “How will my loved one have a welcome place in the community for their lifetime?”…

Donor and Volunteer - Jake M.
Promise Community Homes serves two constituent groups equally – both the disabled and their families. The homes provide the ability to live and belong in community, and thereby enrich the lives of its residents. In turn, providing a safe and happy place to live gives their loved ones peace of mind and freedom of their own. As someone with a developmentally disabled family member, I understand the substantial benefits. By supporting this organization, I’m helping to create and maintain the home and community environment that means so much to so many.

Sister of a Resident Living in a PCH Community Home
My sister lived with our parents until our mom was unable to care for her anymore due to illness. At that time, the only place for my sister to live was in a habilitation center. I was referred to a support agency, and together we approached PCH (then called Rainbow Village) to find a community home for my sister and some roommates. Rainbow Village was able to find a great home in a safe community for the residents and her whole attitude has changed. I noticed that she smiles more and is able to do things we take for granted (i.e. can go to the kitchen and get food when she wants to). The home is great and beautifully maintained. The neighbors even comment that it is one of the best looking homes in the neighborhood. I am very pleased that my sister is provided a safe, comfortable and affordable home in the community for the rest of her life.

Promise Community Homes allows its residents to have a real home in the community with a family of friends, which many of us take for granted.
