The Ville neighborhood will get even more provocative, with new construction of homes, and as non-profit Care STL Health breaks new ground. So, save the date, because they are inviting you to attend their fundraising gala, which is next month in November.
The center with over 5 locations around St. Louis, has helped countless underserved and underinsured residents get and stay healthy. Now, they are asking for your support to continue to provide exceptional service to the community.
Here is what they have to say about their exciting new campus.
|Our 54th Anniversary is a grand milestone! It’s a glimpse of the organization’s past and a look into our future. As a part of this celebration, we honor the accomplishments of our dedicated healthcare heroes and partners.|

CareSTL Health is a Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs or a Community Health Center -CHC). We are a community based healthcare system that provides medical care to underserved, underinsured, and uninsured populations. As a federally qualified health center we receive funding from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), which is a part of the federal government. Under HRSA, CareSTL Health is mandated to provide comprehensive and social services, complete annual reporting requirements known as the Uniform Data System (UDS) and have a board of directors with the majority being patients themselves.
The history of CareSTL Health is as rich as it is complex. It all began in 1968 with a board of directors. The organization was officially chartered in 1969. CareSTL Health proudly honors the Chief Executive Directors who worked tirelessly to make CareSTL Health the comprehensive primary care provider it is today.
The board members are listed on the articles of incorporation and included notably individuals such as William Danforth and Ina Boon. Boon’s name was synonymous with racial justice and she worked as the Regional leader of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). Ina Boon served on the board until her passing in 2017.
