Welcome to the new online home of CRADO - the Community Resource and Development Organization, formerly WCSA (Wellston Community Support Organization).

Mission Statement

Our mission is to strengthen the community and enhance the quality of life in Wellston and the Northern communities of St. Louis County by working collaboratively with community stakeholders, private enterprise, and public institutions to through preservation and development of quality, affordable housing, social services, housing counseling, homeless prevention services, and retention & attraction of quality businesses.

New Name, Same Commitment to the Community


The Community Resource and Development Organization, or CRADO for short, is the new name for the organization formerly named "Wellston Community Support Association" or WCSA.

CRADO as WCSA has been servicing the community since 1995.  To date, 93 Low Income Housing Tax Credit, Single-Family Homes plus 14 For-Sale Homes have been constructed by WCSA.

WCSA has always been about more than building homes, but about building the community one family at a time.  After a home is constructed, the following services have been provided: 

  • Regular maintenance during the 15-year qualifying period
  • Resident Education
  • Community Engagement
  • Partnership Development
  • Demolition ~ (Before & After) 
  • Creation of Green Space

While CRADO will continue servicing the Wellston community, its mission has broadened to bring the good work being done in Wellston to other areas in the St. Louis area.

CRADO has moved to our new offices located in North County!  We are excited about now being located in the community we are expanding into, while still serving the Wellston community.
