Goodbye 2020, Hello 2021!

Happy New Year, North Newstead Association family!

As we wrap up the unprecedented year of 2020 and reflect back on the challenging year that we all had, we can’t help but also look back and see all the good work we were able to accomplish. None of this would have been possible without the support of our friends, partners, and sponsors so THANK YOU for making our 2020 accomplishments possible.

In addition exceeding many of our goals in our normal programming, I also wanted to highlight a few of our accomplishments that we are especially proud of.

With the support of our Rental Assistance Sponsors, we were able to provide over $21,000 in rental assistance to both tenants of North Newstead Association properties and those of partner organizations. Through CARES funding and the generous support of Invest STL, we were able to provide over 700 bags of fresh, nutritious produce and meat to members of our communities who have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. We’ve engaged with over ten neighborhood groups, and as one of our senior resident leaders would like to call it, brought them to the 21st Century by providing both access to technology and also the technical assistance needed to stay connected and engaged in a digital world.

We cannot thank you enough for your years of continuous support. We look forward to another exciting year at North Newstead Association! Thank you.

In lieu of our Annual Mid-November Fundraiser, Check out our 2020 3rd Quarter Annual Report

Its mid-November and in normal times, this would be the time when we gather together and celebrate with you at our annual Community Development Celebration and Fundraiser at the Barnett on Washington. But, as you know, this year is not normal and instead, is unlike any other year North Newstead Association and its staff has ever seen. This mid-November, the pandemic had other plans in mind. In lieu of celebrating with you in-person this mid-November, we are thinking of you and sharing our annual progress of activities with you here instead. Please take the time to scroll through our 3rd Quarter Annual Report to see what we have been up to and keep an eye out for the complete Annual Report once 2020 comes to an end. A copy of 2020’s 3rd Quarter Annual Report can also be downloaded below.

Although we cannot be together this mid-November toasting to another wonderful year of serving residents of North St. Louis City, the hard work continues. This year, more than ever, North Newstead Association and the many communities we serve need your support. Make a donation today at https://tinyurl.com/DonateToNNA to support our programs and operations.

Thank you for your continued support, allowing us to continue our service to those who need it most.

What are your thoughts about the Brickline Greenway?

Your Input Needed: Take the Brickline Greenway Survey

COVID-19 is impacting us all in different ways and Great Rivers Greenway is adapting in a way that makes sense for this project in our community.

Right now, Great Rivers Greenway is moving forward with two corridors, along with early concept design of signature projects, and coordination with other regional projects on community engagement, infrastructure and equitable economic development.

While we cannot gather or go door-to-door, Great Rivers Greenway still needs your feedback to help determine the look, feel and experience of two of these segments. Please take a moment and weigh in via their online survey before September 25! The information collected will be shared with the design team to guide the preliminary design process.

Thank you!

Did you know US Census Takers started hitting the streets August 9th?


If someone visits your home this year to collect information for the 2020 Census, check to make sure they have a valid ID badge with their photograph, a US Dept of Commerce watermark, and an expiration date. Census workers may also carry Census Bureau bags and other equipment with the Census Bureau logo.

Why should you complete the Census?


Because an accurate count will help determine funding for your area for the next 10 years! See more information here: https://2020census.gov/en/community-impact.html
