Our mission is to engage in philanthropic and community activities, positioning the REALTOR® Housing Assistance Fund (RHAF) as a viable and visible contributor to St. Louis quality of life, and to help make the American dream of homeownership possible for all in the Greater St. Louis area.
In response to the growing concern in the region for our homeless and recognizing the natural link between that problem and the REALTOR® profession, the REALTOR® Housing Assistance Fund was established in 1989 by then St. Louis REALTORS® President, Ellen O’Brien. RHAF is a qualified, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization and a vehicle for St. Louis REALTORS® members to give back to their community and serve the area homeless. Since then its inception nearly 30 years ago, RHAF has evolved into an avenue for REALTORS® to help make the American dream of homeownership possible for all in Greater Saint Louis.
“It’s been an honor to witness the donations from the REALTOR® Housing Assistance Fund dispersed into our community and to see first-hand the gratefulness our grant recipients express. Together as a collective group of REALTORS®, affiliates, and friends, we are able to come together and make significant financial donations to help our St. Louis neighbors. Thank you to all of those who have donated.” - Tina Siebert, 2020 Chairperson for REALTOR® Housing Assistance Fund
