Community Builder's Network

Community Builders Network (CBN) is a professional association of nonprofit community building organizations (CBOs) and associate members comprised of lenders, philanthropy, nonprofits, and government actors, whose goal is to build vibrant neighborhoods where people want – and can afford – to live, creating a stronger and more competitive regional economy. These organizations help people make the connections to make their dreams possible, whether it’s an affordable home, a decent-paying job or a safe route to school. As a network, we believe in a St. Louis region where all people live in safe, economically strong and vibrant neighborhoods because of the active engagement of the residents who live there and the community building organizations that represent them.
