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.
The open layout of our 5-acre, 14-building Glasser/Schoenbaum campus is in need of modern security measures and technical advances. Thanks to the Selby Foundation, our Campus of Caring will be getting its first major security and tech overhaul since opening their doors in 1990.
The Selby Foundation is granting the Center $50,000 to complete the project. The Center will be contracting with local electrical contractor, Bright Solutions, to complete the total project, estimated at a cost of $75,000. The plan includes:
“Dr. Glasser’s vision of a bricks-and-mortar nonprofit center ensured that the tenant partners residing here would never need to spend their time and funds on these kinds of overhead costs. She hoped they could focus their resources on the services they provide to people. People were her real passion,” says Dr. Kameron Hodgens, Executive Director & CEO of the Center. “Thanks to the Selby Foundation, we are carrying her vision forward to ensure that the Center remains a stable and safe mainstay of our community.”
“The Selby Foundation is elated to be a part of this important project. The upgrades to the safety and security of the facility, along with the technical upgrades, will benefit all that are served by The Glasser/Schoenbaum Human Services Center” says Carol Butera, President and CEO of the William G. and Marie Selby Foundation.
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.
