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.
Tanneh Moore, Circuit 12 JDAP Supervisor for BAYS Florida, thinks of the JDAP program as a youth's last stop before probation. JDAP stands for Juvenile Diversion Alternative Program, and serves kids ages 17 and under who are referred by the Department of Juvenile Justice.
At the #GlasserPassports lunch on October 24, Moore spoke to a room of staff from other agencies on the Glasser/Schoenbaum campus. "We're looking for more community partners and more resources for our kids and their families," she says.
BAYS' work with their clients begins with understanding what each individual needs to succeed and stay out of trouble. As she explained to the group, it's never one problem - there are many reasons a youth may arrive at their door.
The 40-minute discussion was not only informative but brought up some ideas and connections that would be beneficial to BAYS and other agencies on the campus - and most of all to the clients they serve.
Thanks to Apple Spice Catering for providing five free lunches so that attendees could make the time to meet their neighbors!
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.
