The dedication publicly marks a strong and enduring partnership.

In recognition of a decades-long partnership, The Glasser/Schoenbaum Human Services Center has dedicated a building on its five-acre campus in honor of the Community Foundation of Sarasota County‘s Zella I. and Junius F. Allen Fund.

On Friday, July 30, 2021, teams from the Community Foundation of Sarasota County and Glasser/Schoenbaum unveiled the new building dedication, “In honor of Zella I. and Junius F. Allen Fund of the Community Foundation of Sarasota County.”

The Community Foundation has long supported Glasser/Schoenbaum and its many tenant partners through grantmaking, partnership development, and as a trusted resource to provide direct assistance to many of our community’s most vulnerable residents. A notable example of the many ways the two organizations work together is seen through Season of Sharing, the Community Foundation’s 21-year-old emergency funding program. As a fiscal agent in partnership with the Community Foundation, Glasser/Schoenbaum processes an estimated 30% of requests for this critical assistance, which provides stability through rent and utility payments, as well as childcare and transportation costs.

Additionally, co-founder Dr. Kay Glasser began building an endowment at the Community Foundation shortly after opening the campus in the 1990s. Today, that endowment supports long-term sustainability for the Campus of Caring and its 17 nonprofit tenant partners. During times of crisis like the coronavirus pandemic, the value of an endowment becomes paramount.

“I’m so proud that our partnership is now more visible to the public,” says Glasser/Schoenbaum’s CEO, Dr. Kameron Hodgens, “Our 30-year partnership with the Community Foundation illustrates our shared interest in supporting a healthy and happy quality of life for our region.”

“The last year and a half has redefined what it means to be human in the human services sector,” says Kirsten Russell, Vice President of Community Impact at the Community Foundation of Sarasota County. “The care that Glasser/Schoenbaum has shared with our most vulnerable is – by every measure – as human as it comes.”

Real estate is one of the greatest costs in a business budget. Our partnership with the Glasser Schoenbaum Human Services Center allows more money to go towards our mission. And what better place to house our office than on a campus with nineteen other outreach agencies.

We are a small and young organization and having the ability to network and partner with other community organizations is key to the quality and impact of our work. In addition to the affordable space that The Glasser/Schoenbaum Human Services Center provides to all of us, it inspires us to use this collaborative model as we work to empower our students and their families.

I can't fully express how wonderful it is to take a client by the hand and walk them no more than a couple hundred feet from our office to another agency that can help them when they are in crisis.

As a small organization with a staff of two, employee safety was a big consideration when we were looking for office space. We did not want our employees to be in a place where they were alone. Being on the GSHSC campus has been great because there is a whole community of like-minded professionals.
