Sometimes community needs arise unexpectedly and require urgent action. At St. Louis County Children’s Service Fund, we pride ourselves in our ability to respond effectively and efficiently to emergent mental and behavioral needs.
Responding to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
At the onset of the COVID-19 public health crisis – and not knowing the full impact of the public health orders – the CSF Board allocated $250,000 in emergency funding to 19 organizations to aid in them in continuing to serve kids and families in St. Louis County.
After this initial allocation, we knew the pandemic had likely created more need than we knew about. In the fourth quarter of 2020, we reached out to our partners and the community to better understand the needs that existed and how we could provide support to ensure kids and families received the care they needed. In January 2021, our Board approved an additional $1.4 million in emergency funding.
