Meeting a Foundational Need


To support the foundational needs of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) by providing safe, affordable, and well-maintained neighborhood homes.

How we started?

Our founders were raising family members with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) at a time when the diagnoses were not often even publicly spoken, when the people themselves were far from celebrated. Now 50 years later, the language and attitudes towards people with IDD has changed. But our mission has not. Today, as in 1973 – we stand for the enhancement of our entire community through inclusion and acceptance.

Our Promise

The Promise Community Homes Difference

When a parent learns their child has been diagnosed with a disability, one of the major life questions they’ll eventually face is how to plan for that child’s future.

For many St. Louis area families who are trying to provide the best possible life for their loved ones with IDD, Promise Community Homes means peace of mind.

Our homes are carefully designed for the comfort, safety, and unique needs of each individual resident. From widened doorways to accessible showers, we create customized spaces. Additionally, we continually update the homes so the people we serve know the comfort and security of aging in place.

Promise Community Homes maintains homes to the highest standards, constantly monitoring to audit our residents’ changing needs. More than housing — it’s an opportunity to be a permanent part of our community.
