St. Vincent Home for Children, a nonprofit group in St. Louis that provides professional treatment and residential services for hundreds of struggling children and families at no charge, has named Latosha Fowlkes as the organization's Executive Director. Fowlkes replaces Dr. Carla-Monroe Posey, who led St. Vincent's for nearly six years before retiring in April of this year.
"We are thrilled to welcome Latosha to our team," said Tiffany Charles, St. Vincent Home for Children Board of Trustees Chair. "Her years of experience, proven leadership, clinical expertise, and understanding of the needs of our clients are qualities we value as we grow the scope and impact of our mission. We know she will lead St. Vincent with passion and dedication."
Fowlkes has over 15 years of experience working at nonprofit organizations. She most recently worked at Epworth Children and Family Services, where she was the Vice President of Older Youth and Supportive Services. Before that, Fowlkes served as the Executive Director at Good Samaritan House of Granite City, and Director of Social Services at Guardian Angel Settlement Association. She earned a Master of Social Work from Illinois State University, is a Certified HUD Housing Compliance Manager.
"I am honored to join the dedicated staff, supporters, and volunteers at St. Vincent," said Fowlkes. "There is a deep, rich history and unwavering dedication to helping youth in need that goes back 170 years. I am excited to become part of that tradition and continue this critical mission."
