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.
Glasser/Shoenbaum is launching the Emerging Leader Program, sponsored by community advocates Bill and Barbara Little. The program will select three emerging leaders in the following categories: physical and behavioral health, human services, and arts and culture.
An award presentation at the Collaboration Celebration luncheon on February 28, 2023 kicks off the program, where each recipient will receive a $1,000 grant to develop their leadership goals.
Bill and Barbara Little have spent decades working locally in health and human services. “During my career in health and human services and Barbara’s time in public health and nursing education, we both worked with many talented individuals who, early in their careers, demonstrated a passion and capacity to be an engaged and collaborative leader,” said Bill Little. “This is our way of continuing to encourage and support emerging leaders of today who will guide our community in the future.”
“Our founders were focused on the quality of life for all people in our region,” said Charlene Altenhain, Executive Director of Glasser/Schoenbaum. “We want to provide a platform for the people who will continue that work in the future. This program sends the message that there is a path for emerging leaders, supported and guided by mentors who welcome them.”
The Emerging Leader Program is accepting applications through Januray 6, 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.
