St. Louis County Children’s Service Fund director announces departure

The executive director of the St. Louis County Children’s Service Fund (CSF) announced on Wednesday that she will leave her post at the end of April to pursue other career interests.

Connie Cunningham, the executive director, who had previously headed the Missouri Family Health Council before working for the county, said she was proud to serve the region and is confident that CSF will be in safe hands after her departure.

“I am grateful for having had the opportunity to serve the residents and particularly the children of St. Louis County,” Cunningham said in a written statement. “And I am proud that the St. Louis County Children’s Service Fund is in solid financial shape and will be in the hands of an excellent staff.”

The fund was created in 2008 when County voters approved a quarter-cent sales tax to provide financial support to programs assisting children in need of behavioral health services.

According to St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger’s office, one of his first actions after taking office in 2015 was appointing Cunningham to lead the CSF, with a mandate to spend down what had been an excessive fund balance and put that money to work to help the county’s young people.

Stenger praised Cunningham’s service and stated that she helped fixed the fund’s problems once she was appointed.

“Connie Cunningham took over a fund that, quite frankly, had been in disarray,” he said. “She leaves it in far better shape than she found it. I salute her for the great work she’s done on behalf of the children of St. Louis County and I wish her the best in the next phase of her life.”

Emily Koenig, the fund’s Director of Administration and Finance, will serve as its interim director.

  5. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
