A Letter From the executive Director
CASA of St. Louis County experienced a groundbreaking year. Staying focused on improving outcomes for area children in foster care, CASA sustained its service levels despite the ongoing challenging environment. Paramount to increasing positive results for CASAs children is the work of volunteers. These efforts are the foundation for which the CASA program is established, and it drives our ability to expand our programs reach in ways that could never happen without their engagement. The commitment of child advocates, Board members and Friends of CASA to our communitys most vulnerable children was incredible. Looking longer term, however, we know that our current success is not enough to carry us into a future that includes serving all children in St. Louis County foster care in an acceptable timeframe. Various projections have shown that it could take close to 20 years to accomplish this. Taking into consideration independent research about the effectiveness of CASA volunteers and the overall well-being of children in foster care, the thought of so many children living in unstable and unsafe environments inspired us to ask, What if?

AdvocAcy ServiceS StAtiSticS: The Family Court of St. Louis County had an average of 791 children under its jurisdiction in 2010. CASA volunteers were appointed to about 38.4% of these children. CASA served 465 children through the advocacy of 301 volunteers and swore in 93 new volunteers. In 2011, we aim to serve 525 children through the work of 350 volunteers.

ChARting the CouRse foR the futuRe, ContinueD

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 same conclusion 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 decision made 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 strong position to consider this bold step. I hope you will continue to support us as we chart our course for the future. We will provide 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

2010 event highlights

Thanks to all of our volunteers, supporters, sponsors and builders, our special events were a huge success! In February we held our 4th Annual Smartypants Trivia Night, this time with a 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 CASAs commitment to safe, happy homes for kids. We had seven playhouses on display at Ambassador Floor and another four at St. Louis Mills. To kick-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 us at 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 the CASA children we serve reading books and at least two presents each for the 2010 holiday. Thank you to Whole Foods Market and Barnes & Noble Bookstores for their support in the endeavor.
