Casa de Salud is offering the American Lung Association’s Freedom From Smoking program for adults that are ready to quit smoking. This program focuses on how to quit, not why to quit. Held in a group setting, the program consists of eight sessions and it will be co-facilitated by Casa staff members Lindsey Pierce and Eileen Wolfington. Participants will receive personalized attention. The sessions will be held on Sunday afternoons from 4:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. in Spanish at Casa de Salud, 3200 Chouteau Ave, St. Louis, MO 63103. For more information or to register, contact Lindsey at 314-977-1271 or Eileen at 314-662-1203. Please click here for a full listing of our classes held at Casa.

The Newmark Institute for Human Relations at the Jewish Community Relations Council, Saint Louis University Legal Clinics, and Legal Services of Eastern Missouri are collaborating to offer free legal counseling each month at Casa for those who could not otherwise afford such services. We thank our partners for helping us reach out and assist the most vulnerable among us.
Helping Us Help Others
The Lutheran Foundation of St. Louis has granted Casa $69,000 which will support our clinic staff and organization-wide evaluation efforts. Additionally, Emerson Charitable Trust has awarded Casa $50,000 for general operating costs. Ladue Chapel Presbyterian Church is awarding Casa a $15,000 gift for general operating costs. And Fifth Third Bank announced it will award Casa $5,000 to support our Health Literacy and Navigation work. We are so grateful for the support.
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, Emily Anderson, at email@example.com or 314-977-1258 to learn more or to get an application.
