In recognition of a decades-long partnership, The Glasser/Schoenbaum Human Services Center has dedicated a building on its five-acre campus in honor of the Community Foundation of Sarasota County‘s Zella I. and Junius F. Allen Fund.

The Community Foundation has long supported Glasser/Schoenbaum and its many tenant partners through grantmaking, partnership development, and as a trusted resource to provide direct assistance to many of our community’s most vulnerable residents. A notable example of the many ways the two organizations work together is seen through Season of Sharing, the Community Foundation’s 21-year-old emergency funding program. As a fiscal agent in partnership with the Community Foundation, Glasser/Schoenbaum processes an estimated 30% of requests for this critical assistance, which provides stability through rent and utility payments, as well as childcare and transportation costs.
