Keys to Change Is Making Housing and Education Accessible

Our mission is to unlock access to quality housing and support the growth and community of those who dedicate their lives to serving others. This passion project reaches out to the often overlooked populations, accommodating those in the helping professions, such as healthcare professionals, educators, first responders, and social workers.

By providing resources, education, and grants to individuals working in related fields, Keys to Change is committed to assisting those in the helping professions to take the next step in their journey. Whether becoming a homeowner or advancing their education to continue their hero status, we hope to help our community heroes reach their goals.

Meet Courtney and Casie

Hi, we’re Courtney and Casie, and we started Keys to Change as a way to make a difference in the lives of local heroes. Our firsthand experiences as registered nurses and certified child life specialists give us the compassion to understand the burnout and fatigue caregivers encounter when taking on a greater emotional and mental load while enduring increased hours and inadequate compensation. We truly empathize with what our future beneficiaries are experiencing and the lack of support available to them while they dedicate their lives to helping others. Understanding that these professionals live under many different circumstances and may not have a hand to help with affordable housing or career advancement, we’re offering the key to a new door. Keys to Change is our passion project from our life, community, and career experiences. It is our innate desire to help people and watch them grow.

Courtney and Casie belong to the National Association of Realtors, St. Louis Association of Realtors, and we are At Home with Diversity Certified Realtors.
