The act of helping others to build something that is so crucial in credit unleashes the potential for underserved communities to drastically climb up the ladder of opportunity. Justine Petersen is at the forefront of that work all over St. Louis and the greater MidWest region.

I was a Social Worker not making much money and Justine Petersen Housing Corp helped me buy a home in 2001. My loan is at a good interest rate and my neighborhood is great. I have been in my house awhile now and I recommend this organization to everyone I run into so they can get a great house, too. I am still a lower income person, but I have learned how to afford the repairs through the workshops they offer and I feel confident as a homeowner.

Justine Petersen helped my husband learn how to build his credit as a new arrival to the US. They also provided a Spanish translator to accommodate his needs. They also helped us buy our first house. The talented and professional staff helped us from beginning to end, from collecting documents for our loan, meeting with loan officer, house searching and offers, to inspections and closing. The programs offered by Justine Petersen are very effective in helping clients build their credit, own their own home, start a business, etc.
