To be the leader of a collaborative community providing high quality, accessible facilities and resources for the local human services nonprofit sector.
The Glasser/Schoenbaum Human Services Center is called the “Campus of Caring” because it is home to over 20 nonprofit health and human services agencies that help low income and at risk adults, children and families. The center occupies 14 buildings in a location selected for its accessibility by public transportation. It is a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
Benefits to the resident agencies:
- Minimal monthly rental fee, frees up more dollars for programs and services and more time to do their work for clients;
- Easy collaboration with other resident agencies;
- Free use of Conference Center;
- More efficient case management;
- and ample parking.
Benefits to the individuals and families:
- Affordable preventative and treatment services in one location;
- Easy access by public transportation;
- Improved quality of services through increased collaboration among agencies;
- The opportunity to become productive, self-sustaining members of our community.
Benefits to the community:
Each year, 26,000 clients receive services from the agencies housed at the Center. Best estimates show that our campus has saved our tenant partner agencies over $10 million in operational expenses since we opened our doors in 1990. The improvement to clients’ quality of life, of course, is unquantifiable but is perhaps the greatest measure of the successful outcomes of the 76 programs offered by our tenant partner agencies.
