Christina Russi

Glasser/Schoenbaum Takes On New Program & Staff

Community Funders Support the Change

The Glasser/Schoenbaum Human Services Center has adopted a new program, a new employee, and new ways to serve the community. Christina Russi, formerly of 211 Suncoast, has assumed the new role of Community Fiscal Agent & Liaison. As Fiscal Agent, she will be continuing the work she did with 211 in processing applications and dispersing funds locally for Season of Sharing and Publix Charities. As Community Liaison, she will be the Sarasota/Manatee/DeSoto “boots-on-the-ground” for 211 Heart of Florida, which provides information and referral resources for local financial assistance, health programs, crisis support and more.

A 16-year veteran of the human services sector, Russi knows there is much work to be done. “The collaborative partnerships within the social services network are vital to the success of its programs and projects. The threads closely woven together give the needed strength to the fabric of the community services,” says Russi. Her position at Glasser/Schoenbaum is being generously supported by a funding collaborative of local counties and foundations.

Glasser/Schoenbaum’s Executive Director and CEO, Dr. Kameron Hodgens, is enthusiastic about the expansion. “We are thrilled to have Christina on our team. One of our recent goals was to be able to expand what we do by providing a more direct service to those most in need who are often served by our 16 tenant partner agencies,” she says. “By enhancing our mission, it is truly a win-win for everyone involved.”

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.
