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.
At the end of 2017 with the addition of our Community Liaison, Christina Russi, our organization began processing requests for emergency funding through Season of Sharing, a special program provided by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County.
Today, we are processing roughly 1/3 of the total Season of Sharing funds available to the community, going to an estimated 1000 households per year. We are grateful to be able to provide this important service.

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.
