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.
With predictions that the storm would arrive on Wednesday, the Glasser/Schoenbaum team convened to discuss preparations for the campus grounds, Center operations, and fiscal agent services.
The team got to work. Shades came down, benches were stowed; from the elevator, to the garden gnome, to the golf cart, all physical items were secured. Emergency plans were communicated with the campus and with all fiscal agent community partners.
We hunkered down as team and as a community. Charlene Altenhain, Executive Director, celebrated a birthday.
While staff and their families checked in with each other, staff leaders went to the campus to assess the damage.
The team, volunteers, and Literacy Council staff came together to begin cleaning the campus so that agencies could get back to work as soon as they were ready.
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.
