THANKS for all your SUPPORT!

Thanks to all our supporters who gave during Give STL Day!  We appreciate each and every gift as it helps us reach more people in need in the community.  This year more than 900 nonprofits in the St. Louis region participated in Give STL Day, each with an important cause.

We're very grateful for the generosity of the St. Louis community, particularly in light of the technical difficulties that occurred with the Give STL website, here and across the country.  Once donor amounts have been calculated, we will post our total amount raised.  THANK YOU AGAIN for


Our Spirit of Provident Annual Gala finally happened after many months of planning and work.  Many thanks to our planning committee and in particular, two of our very dedicated Board members—Barb Abbett and Denise Bentele, along with our Executive Director, Steve Sullivan, Sherry Gerke, Julie McDowell and Maggie Bauer. Also key was our team of volunteers that night. 

The positive energy was palpable!  Loved the ambiance at the Four Seasons and the program was substantive with colorful content and skill from our MC, Dan Gray, and our ED, Steve Sullivan along with our new Board Chair, Larry Thomas.  Risa Zwerling and Mark Wrighton were the inaugural recipients of our Spirit of Provident award for their dedication to improving the quality of life in our region.  And, Charlie Box received the Jackie Kaiser Volunteer Award for his 21 years of service to the crisis hotline.

Hearing Kevin Hines' story in person was truly amazing.  He is awe-inspiring, sharing his mental health journey, a champion for survival and recovery!
