Family Promise of South Sarasota County (FPSSC) is pleased to have received $29,800 from the Community Foundation of Sarasota County’s Equity and Access Grant Program. FPSSC received these funds to support their Bridge Housing Program.

The Bridge Housing Program provides temporary shelter, meals and comprehensive services to homeless children and their families. The “Day Center” located in Venice, FL, provides a safe place for families during the day while the organization’s partnership with area churches provides overnight shelter and food.

“We provide shelter, meals, basic needs (clothing, toiletries, personal items), case management and resources to families in transition”, said Jennifer Fagenbaum, FPSSC’s Executive Director. “During the day, families have access to our Day Center which is a hub for the organization. This center provides a permanent address for families, training, and case management services. All adults meet for employment consultation and financial counseling”.
