Justine PETERSEN Recognizes Jim Roos of SITO as JP’s 2023 Lifetime Achievement Awardee!

As a longtime friend of Justine PETERSEN, it is an honor to witness Jim Roos (pictured here on the right, with his wife Judy Roos (center) and JP’s C.E.O. Robert Boyle (Left)) receive this lifetime achievement award for his outstanding work. Jim Roos brings more than 50 years of expertise in serving low-income communities in St. Louis through targeted rehabilitation and property management. In 1992, he established Sanctuary In The Ordinary (SITO), a non-profit organization dedicated to expanding the availability of affordable rental units. The core concept behind SITO is to offer a “sanctuary”—a secure and welcoming home for individuals with limited financial means.
