The Glasser/Schoenbaum Human Services Center honored its role as a "place maker" at this year's spring luncheon March 26.
The Collaboration Celebration, hosted at The Westin Sarasota, gathered a crowd of supporters of the center as well as those who use its facilities. The luncheon sold out.
The program began with a video from an interview with the late Betty Schoenbaum, who urged viewers to tour the facility, because "it makes your heart feel good." A Champagne toast in her honor followed.
After lunch, urban designer Elma Felix-Lamontagne took the stage to talk about places and how they build community. The Glasser/Schoenbaum Human Services Center provides space for nonprofits to work from, saving them costs that would normally go towards running the nonprofit.
Currently, the center houses 19 nonprofits, including Children's Guardian Fund, First Step of Sarasota, More Too Life and UnidosNow.
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.
Beyond the savings we experience, we are so grateful for the truly supportive environment both our clients and staff experience on the campus. The collegial nature of our organizations fosters a spirit of health and wellness.
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.
