Tom Melville talks to guests about Literacy Council

On August 27th, Glasser/Schoenbaum held the first #GlasserPassports lunch, with The Literacy Council of Sarasota presenting. The program is simple: one tenant partner talks to their neighbors about what they do, and connections are made. The setting is casual, with the help of Apple Spice Catering, who sponsored the event with some of their free boxed lunches.

In fact, lunch is the key to making the event possible. With the busy schedules that nonprofit staff must keep, making the most of lunch is the best way to get folks together.

In a world where we are all working online and communicating through emails, it’s helpful to find resources right next door. The conversation from August 27th has already proven to be fruitful. “As a result of our lunch this week I reached out to two organizations to learn more about their services and will be including at least one (if not both) in our ESL classes for parents,” reports Susan Bergstrom, Program Director, Literacy Council of Sarasota.

The next #GlasserPassports lunch will take place on September 12th, and Early Learning Coalition of Sarasota will be talking about what they do. Email sglendening@gs-humanservices.org for more information.

As a small organization with a staff of two, employee safety was a big consideration when we were looking for office space. We did not want our employees to be in a place where they were alone. Being on the GSHSC campus has been great because there is a whole community of like-minded professionals.

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.

I can't fully express how wonderful it is to take a client by the hand and walk them no more than a couple hundred feet from our office to another agency that can help them when they are in crisis.
