Hola and welcome to Casa de Salud, a new path to health and wellness for immigrants in the St. Louis community.
Also, we are deeply grateful to all of the organizations and individuals who contributed to Casa in 2012.
News at Casa
Casa de Salud’s project “Semillas de Sanación (Seeds of Healing)” has been nominated for Monsanto’s Grow St. Louis contest, May 6-19. The five organizations with the highest number of votes will each receive $20,000. The funds from the contest will support the mental health program at Casa, which provides therapy and counseling to adults who have experienced trauma. Your support is much appreciated, and would make a difference in the lives of many in the St. Louis metro area. Individuals can vote one time per day, click here to vote between May 6-19!
Zocaloco 2013: Many of you told us how much you enjoyed our gala event, Zocaloco, in 2011. We are happy to tell you that Zocaloco returns on November 8, 2013 at the Wool Ballroom at the Busch Student Center on the campus of Saint Louis University. We hope you will save the date and plan to be with us for a night of great food and entertainment, the opportunity to purchase lovely holiday gifts from Latin artisans, and the chance to support the work of Casa de Salud. For more information about being a part of the celebration, please contact the event chairperson, Shera Dalin, at 314-223-8743, or email@example.com.
Casa, in partnership with People’s Health Centers, has opened a Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) office at our facility. This program provides supplemental foods, health care referrals, and nutrition education for low-income pregnant, breastfeeding, and non-breastfeeding postpartum women, and to infants and children up to age five who are at nutritional risk. We are very proud to collaborate with People’s to provide this service. Appointments can be made by calling 314-772-1633.
Helping Us Help Others
In the first quarter of this year, Casa received major contributions from Emerson Charitable Trust ($50,000, part of a three year grant totaling $150,000); Express Scripts Foundation ($50,000), the Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital ($50,000), Ladue Chapel Presbyterian Church ($12,500), and the William T. Kemper Foundation – Commerce Bank, Trustee ($7,225).
You Can Help Too
DONATE! Join Casa in our “Everyone Can Plan.” We understand that many people cannot afford to give larger gifts, but we hope that many individuals can give a small amount, even pledged over a period of time. Your donation will ensure our ability to treat people who have no where else to turn, and as a result will improve the overall public health of the region. If you are able to contribute $100 or more, we will send you a lapel pin with the Casa shield logo (see below). Please DONATE today!
VOLUNTEER! We need lots of talented people: doctors, nurses, students, bilingual speakers, and helping hearts. Contact our volunteer coordinator, Dan Richter, to learn more or to get an application.
