Impact

The Anna Maria Island Community Center is often described at the “Heart of the Island.” This is the place where families, multiple generations, come together for healthy fun, engaging programming and true community service. This is a place that families trust to provide a safe haven for children and teens before and after school, a place where seniors find a friendly welcome and social connection – often during a fierce game of pickleball or a stimulating discussion group. This is a place where no one is turned away for lack of resources.

Accomplishments:

·        AMICC provided $294,000 in scholarships to families needing safe before & after-school programming and/or counseling services.

·        AMICC Teen program completed many community service projects including:

  • Regular Beach Clean-Up
  • Food In-Security Programs such as Feeding Hungry Children
  • Community Charity Events and Donation Drives

                  Partnered with other local nonprofits:        

  • Cortez Maritime Museum to offer paddle board and family boat building classes in the coming year as well as a science/math based curricula;
  • Cultural Connections to increase impact and decrease expenses;

 Conducted a “CommUnity Starts Here” Needs Assessment to determine the wants & needs of our members and friends.

Goals:

1.    Continue to offer scholarships to all families/individuals – never turn anyone away for a lack of resources;

2.    Increase access and interaction with our members and guests by moving our administrative offices to the lobby of the AMICC building;

3.    Expand our fitness center and begin a “Healthy Island” initiative;

4.    Increase our “earned revenue” capability to decrease our dependence on fund-raising. 

Background
Established in 1960 as a teen center, the Anna Maria Island Community Center, a 501(c)(3) corporation, has grown to meet the expanded needs of our community as the only not for profit serving the developmental needs of youth, providing educational, recreational, cultural and family counseling programs for all residents especially those most at risk.
Needs

The following are items for which we would be very grateful:

  • AMICC is a Red Cross certified post-disaster hurricane shelter. We need a Commercial Generator to assure safety and building functionality - $ 25,000 (est.);
  • Sports photographer(s) and framer(s) to take action photos of members/guests participating in the many sports/classes we offer and to display them throughout our building;
  • Our Teen Community Service activities often require a utility truck, ours is 25 years old and desperately needs replacement - $18 – 28,000 (est.).
  • A volunteer driver on Fridays for our van to take a Senior Outing Club to their destination, lunch and return.  Typically from 10 am-2 or 4 pm.  Driver has the option of participating in the activity and lunch - the Center will reimburse.  
CEO Statement

As a “new” CEO at AMICC I am privileged to lead an organization that has a far-reaching impact on the lives of some of the areas most vulnerable members – children and seniors. The importance of what we do to provide a consistently safe and welcoming environment to all who enter through our doors cannot be understated. 

Stewardship of the resources we have been entrusted to manage – financial/human and environmental is part of the culture and fabric of our philosophy and way in which we perform our jobs on behalf of our community. Our two highest values must always be Safety and Quality – reflecting our respect for our members/guests and ourselves. After-all, this Community Center belongs to the “Community.”

Programs
Description  “The goal of the child abuse prevention program is early detection of parenting problems. Parents can enroll in counseling and other social service programs. If early detection and prevention programs are effective, these programs can save public dollars that would otherwise be spent on treatment and associated social programs, including the possibility of removing children from their homes”. Family Foundations, a family therapy program, establishes that every child should feel safe in school, at home, online and in the community. One of the best ways to reduce the effects of bullying, child abuse and neglect is to prevent it before it occurs. In 1993, our Family Foundations was established to serve at risk children by meeting the professional counseling needs of the uninsured and underinsured families of Manatee County. The program has two part-time professional staff serving over 50 families and the children in life skills groups.The program employs professionally licensed social workers with many years of experience providing counseling to children, youth and families through individual and group meetings.

Examples of Program Success  I am a single parent with sole custody of three children under the age of 10 and no insurance and no family support. Their father was abusive and we lived in fear, he suffers from addictions and has been in and out of the jail since our divorce. This Community Center provided me with parenting support and a family counseling program and the therapist has been here for me and my children, our family is so much stronger and happier thanks to you for your support through our darkest days. Thank you!

Examples of Program Success I often spend four to five days a week at the Center taking part in the activities. I moved to the Island two years ago and not knowing anyone and was lucky to meet a “pickleball player” a member of the group. I was warmly welcomed and immediately made to feel a part of a big Community Center family. This has been a life-changing experience for me. My kids can’t believe that their mom has become a “Pilate’s student” “pickleball player”, “artist” and a front desk /tour of homes volunteer!  Thank you from an “An active senior who loves the Center”

Comments
Program Comments by Organization

Challenges: Our challenges are threefold. Last year we gave $294,000 in scholarships to families lacking the financial resources to cover the cost of before/after school care, counseling and team athletics. This was a significant increase from previous years. While the economy appears to be growing we are not seeing an improvement in the finances of our most vulnerable families.

Secondly, the number of year round residents living on Anna Maria appears to be in decline – this offers both an opportunity in terms of programming options for vacationers and a challenge to continue to offer programming and earn revenue during the times of the year that are less seasonal. 

And lastly, we struggle with timing as our historical donors step back to make way for younger donors; it takes time to develop this base as well as grow a more sustainable model of earned income. 

Our strength comes in part from the loyalty of our members, many of whom are multi-generational, and the spirit they bring to the Center that was and is such a big part of their lives and the lives of their children and grandchildren. Our strength is also in our adherence to the accomplishment of our mission – without compromise.

Leadership Comments by Organization
The Anna Maria Island Community Center has a virtually new Board of Directors.  Of the maximum number of 17 Voting Board members only 5 are returning members.  Because we were in the process of recruiting new members we have waited to begin work on a new strategic plan.  This work will begin in earnest at the beginning of the new year.
    The Center has recently hired a Director of Education to further develop our elementary and teen After-School and Vacation programs.  Our goal is to engage youth in active learning programs that stimulate their natural curiosity and are developmentally appropriate.  We believe that the outcomes will be increased engagement in learning in school and community/home venues.
   Our Athletic Director & Asst are new to the sports programs and are growing our programs for individuals of all ages - especially youth.  We have a strong program that reinforces lifes important lessons:  Play by the rules; exhibit good sportsmanship on and off the field and be responsible & respectful team members.   
    Our variety of Senior programs are growing and helping to meet the need for health/care-taker information, socialization, healthy activities and day trips.
