Hola and welcome to Casa de Salud, a new path to health and wellness for immigrants in the St. Louis community.
News at Casa
Congratulations to our Community Health Worker, Eileen Wolfington, for being named a Leader of Distinction by the YWCA!
We are pleased to announce that the 2013 Annual Report for Casa de Salud is now available. The report features an overview of the people we’re serving and select patient profiles, updates on our programs and their progress, and recognition for the many people and organizations that have helped us be successful.
Helping Us Help Others
Our most recent support comes from the Daughter of Charity Foundation of St. Louis with a $20,000 grant, St. Louis Children’s Hospital Foundation with a $10,000 grant, and a $5,000 grant from the Saigh Foundation. The Fox Family Foundation also assisted us with a $1,000 gift. We are grateful for their generosity.
Earlier support for Casa includes Express Scripts that awarded Casa a $50,000 grant in support of our general operations, and U.S. Bancorp Foundation that provided Casa with a $5,000 grant, also in support of our general operations. In addition, Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals granted us $27,857 in support of our GUIA program, and Missouri Foundation for Health gave $5,000 in support of our IT upgrade efforts, which will allow us to more efficiently complete our work. Moreover, the William T. Kemper Foundation (Commerce Bank, Trustee) awarded Casa a $25,000 grant to cover the costs of consultants that Casa is using to create a more robust sustainability program.
Also, the Monsanto Latin Network, an employee affinity group within Monsanto that fosters leadership and raises awareness of Latin diversity, staged an indoor soccer tournament that simultaneously provided a way for members to have a great time while raising funds for the general operations of Casa de Salud. Additionally, the contributions were matched by the Monsanto Fund, the philanthropic arm of Monsanto Company. Altogether, $6,985 was raised. Casa thanks Facundo Oyenard and all of the members of the Monsanto Latin Network for making the “Mundialito” tournament possible and for their generosity on behalf of Casa de Salud.
