Message from Carla, St. Vincent’s CEO

Carla Monroe-Posey, Ph.D.

Since our founding, all of St. Vincent’s services have been free of charge. With the generous support of individual donors, foundations, and corporations, we have maintained this tradition.

In our 168th year, St. Vincent Home for Children continues to serve youth and families facing significant life challenges through residential and in-home mental health services.

This past year, St. Vincent introduced an activitybased approach called the “6 C’s” that is designed to build and nurture in the youth we serve the critical characteristics of Competence, Confidence, Connection, Character, Compassion, and Contribution. Research shows that this positive approach to personal development encourages youth to build on their strengths while developing new behaviors, knowledge, and skills to help them reach their full potential.

Since our founding, all of St. Vincent’s services have been free of charge. With the generous support of individual donors, foundations, and corporations, we have maintained this tradition. While St. Vincent continues to receive funding from several governmental programs, the level of support has decreased significantly, leaving a “gap” between the amount paid and the true cost of care. In the past three years, government funding has decreased by 25%, now covering only 54 cents for every dollar in service costs.

That’s why your generous philanthropic support is so vital to our ability to meet the needs of youth in the greater St. Louis community. Without private philanthropic support, we would have to turn away youth and families facing significant challenges because they don’t have the ability to pay for these critical services.

Thank you for keeping our youth in your heart. We are proud of our history and with your help and support, we will continue to provide excellent care and services free of charge to youth and families in our community.
