Glasser/Schoenbaum is an integral part of our community. They not only provide critical commercial space for non-profits but also build networks within our community to meet the needs of our most vulnerable.
The Community Alliance is a group comprised of organizations in Sarasota's human services community. It is a meeting of minds for the sector, making connections and setting priorities for the systems of social services.
On October 24th, 2022, the Alliance held its Legislative Summit, where attendees broke into nine groups focusing on nine different social service categories. The goal was to agree as a group on which priorities it would pass on to our local, regional, and state legislators.
The summit was led by the Legislative Advocacy Committee co-chairs Sara Olesen of Healthy Start of Sarasota and Dawn Sakes of More Too Life.
The Salvation Army of Sarasota kindly provided the many spaces needed for convening and breakout rooms.
The upcoming Legislative Presentation Event will take place at the Academy at Glengary on 11/16/2022 at 3:30pm where sector leaders will be presenting the legislative priority issues to our elected officials. Registration is free.
Membership with the Community Alliance is free and open to the public. If you would like to receive emails about the activities and meetings for the Alliance, email email@example.com.
Glasser/Schoenbaum serves as the administrator of the Alliance to keep it operating and moving forward. Charlene Altenhain serves as chair of the Community Alliance.
The staff at Glasser/Schoenbaum have done a great job of connecting the many organizations on campus and creating a space that sparks collaboration. This sense of community extends to staff and clients alike, helping to break down barriers and leading to innovative ways to serve the community as a whole.
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.
