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.
Nominations for the second annual Emerging Leader Award are open. Sponsored by community advocates Bill and Barbara Little, the program selects three emerging leaders in physical, behavioral, and environmental health; human services; and arts and culture.
The awards will be presented at the Collaboration Celebration breakfast on February 29, 2024, where each recipient will receive $1,000 to advance their leadership goals.
Tiona Settles of CenterPlace Health was one of the recipients of the inaugural award this past February. “The Emerging Leader program was a great experience, particularly the opportunities we had to network and hear from leaders across Sarasota County,” said Settles. “I learned that regardless of whether you’ve been in your role for one year or 30 years there is something that we can all take away to improve our leadership abilities.”
“The Emerging Leader Program is a catalyst for growth,” said Charlene Altenhain, Executive Director of Glasser/Schoenbaum. “The leadership journey is as important as the destination. I’m incredibly proud of what we’re building and the impact it is already having on our future leaders.”
The Emerging Leader Program is accepting applications through November 30, 2023. More information about eligibility, nominations, and applications can be found at www.GS-HumanServices.org/Emerging-Leader.
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.
