CASA of St. Louis County experienced a groundbreakingyear. Staying focused on improving outcomes for areachildren in foster care, CASA sustained its service levelsdespite the ongoing challenging environment.Paramount to increasing positive results for CASA’s childrenis the work of volunteers. These efforts are the foundation for which the CASA program is established, and it drives our ability to expand our program’s reach in ways that couldnever happen without their engagement. The commitmentof child advocates, Board members and Friends of CASA toour community’s most vulnerable children was incredible.Looking longer term, however, we know that our currentsuccess is not enough to carry us into a future that includesserving all children in St. Louis County foster care in anacceptable timeframe. Various projections have shown thatit could take close to 20 years to accomplish this.Taking into consideration independent research about theeffectiveness of CASA volunteers and the overall well-beingof children in foster care, the thought of so many childrenliving in unstable and unsafe environments inspired us toask, “What if?”

 As a result, we spent the majority of 2010 examining the possibilities in the form of a merger exploration with our sister program in St. Louis City, Voices for Children. In late September, the two Boards of Directors came to the sameconclusion that the potential from joining the forces of two independently established agencies was too much to ignore,particularly when the Boards added how the nonprofit landscape is changing and what it will take to continue to earn the investments of the community. Since the two CASA programs have been collaborating since 2008, the decisionmade sense on many levels.Work groups that involve both agencies’ Board, staff and CASA volunteers have formed, and integration planning is taking place. A merger agreement will be presented to the two Boards in 2011, and if it is accepted, a new organization that continues to utilize the CASA model will be formed. Through a process that is judicious, equitable and reasonable,a strategy will emerge that encompasses sustainability and growth to help the blended entity introduce an even greater number of kids to CASA for the very first time.Thank you for your past involvement with CASA of St. Louis County. Without you, we would not be in such a strongposition to consider this bold step. I hope you will continue to support us as we chart our course for the future. We willprovide updates on our progress throughout the year. In the meantime please do not hesitate to contact me at (314)615-4508 or aray@casastlcounty.org with questions or comments.Gratefully, Allie Chang Ray, Executive Director

Thanks to all of our volunteers, supporters, sponsors and builders, our specialevents were a huge success!In February we held our 4th Annual Smartypants Trivia Night, this time witha Mardi Gras flair. We had over 400 people in attendance and brought in more than $33,000! A special thank you to Edward Jones for allowing us to use their  fantastic space.Our 2010 playhouses were bigger than ever at the 3rd Annual CASAs for Kids Playhouse Event. The playhouses serve as tangible symbols of CASA’scommitment to safe, happy homes for kids. We had seven playhouseson display at Ambassador Floor and another four at St. Louis Mills. Tokick-off the event we celebrated with a western theme of playhouses at Ambassador Floor with a BBQ. Then Tim Ezell of Fox 2 News joined usat The Mills and introduced the playhouses to St. Louis on Fox 2 News in the morning. We raised over $30,000! Thank you to St. Louis Mills and Ambassador Floor for donating so much of their space and time for our signature event.Through our 9th Annual Giving Tree event, we were able to give all theCASA children we serve reading books and at least two presents each for  the 2010 holiday. Thank you to Whole Foods Market and Barnes & NobleBookstores for their support in the endeavor.
