Background Statement

The Glasser-Schoenbaum Human Services Center houses 16 nonprofit human service agencies, who provide a range of affordable, accessible, cost-effective and efficiently delivered programs and services to individuals and families. It was the first of its kind in Florida and the result of over a decade of volunteer effort, involving securing funding to build the 14 buildings which constitute the Center. An alliance of private and public philanthropy with a consortium of banking institutions paid for the construction of the Center. No federal tax dollars were involved. It was conceived in 1984 and formally opened with all agencies in the Spring of 1990. The construction mortgage was eliminated in 1993. This year, we celebrate our 28th year of existence and are proud to say that we have saved the agencies on our campus more than $15 million in overhead expenses, as well as provided them with a professional, collaborative venue in which they can share resources, ideas and initiatives in one central location.  As a result, they are able to deliver more programs and services to more clients to the benefit of our entire community.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President

On behalf of the Board of Directors, thank you for your interest in The Glasser/Schoenbaum Human Services Center’s “Campus of Caring”. My wife and I moved from Jackson County, located in the Appalachian hills of Southeastern Ohio, to Sarasota on a part-time basis 15 years ago and permanently in 2012.

We were surprised to see that struggles such as poverty, drug addiction, child welfare, and behavioral health issues were as prevalent here as in our Ohio Community. In 2014, our friend Sam Shapiro introduced us to the Center and its mission. We were most intrigued by how the Center was meeting human service needs that mirrored those we were familiar with back home.

Involvement with the Center has educated us about the significant income disparity in our community. Living wages are hard to come by as 50% of our population is in the unskilled labor force and 50% of our public school children are on free or reduced lunch.

Today, as Chairman of the Board, I have the honor and pleasure to work with our 15-member volunteer board to move our major initiatives forward. From former public and private corporation executives to small business owners, attorneys, financial advisors, and city commissioners, our experienced members are committed to guiding this organization forward in a way that continues to meet the needs of our most vulnerable populations.

With your support, we are looking forward to our next phase of growth and enhanced service provision. Join us as we strive to impact this community – our chosen home – by raising the quality of life for all.


Jack Kidd

Statement from the CEO/Executive Director

The Glasser Schoenbaum Human Services is excited to celebrate its 28th year of continuous service to our local nonprofit community and to those they serve. In 2016, our campus extended a helping hand to over 45,500 individuals and benefited from over $16.8 million in program funding. The impact to our community is immeasurable.

As members of the National Nonprofit Centers Network, we are able to access and learn from other "like" centers around the U.S. and Canada.  Keeping up with the changes and models of other nonprofit centers helps to ensure that we are keeping up with industry standards while meeting tenant expectation and community need.

We are pleased to announce our recent partnerships with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to research healthcare capacity of our local nonprofit community, the Leadership Sarasota class who is installing a new Serenity Garden on our property, and the Community Health Centers of Sarasota for the installation of our new pediatric dental clinic. Expansion is on the horizon as we explore the construction of a 15th building on campus to meet the need of our growing wait list of interested tenants.    

I welcome you to learn more about our Center. Please visit our website at or call (941) 365-4545 to schedule a campus tour. 

Dr. Kameron P. Hodgens

Executive Director/CEO

Our program is to provide a 14-building campus of affordable human service nonprofit office and conference space, charging only a small rent fee to defray the cost of maintenance and utilities. It is our mission to provide these agencies the support that they need to strengthen their impact while fulfilling their individual missions.  Equally important, these agencies have the benefit of onsite collaboration and shared resources, all of which ultimately allows them to better serve their clients and our community.

We are the fiscal agent for Publix Charities, 1 of 6 Sarasota County fiscal agents for Season of Sharing and the administrator of the local board of the FEMA Emergency Food & Shelter National Board Program. We support, as Community Liaison, the 2-1-1 organization that provides resource referrals to individuals in need.

Program Success Monitoring
Our annual survey is completed by each tenant partner agency and collects information on total numbers served, staffing, agency budgets, volunteers and programs offered. Additionally, all agencies on campus have their own systems in place to measure the success of their individual programs.
Program Success Examples

Our recent survey tells us that agencies continue to experience an increased demand for services, as is evident in the daily number of visitors to our Center.  Our conference space, which includes 2 sizeable self-contained rooms with access to audio/visual equipment, is booked by multiple agencies on a daily basis. 

In 2016:
   28,611 clients were served.
   $16.8 million was budgeted for programs by our tenant partner agencies.
   79 programs were offered.
   149 staff were employed and over 770 volunteers were utilized. 
Program Comments by Organization

Our mission is to meet the unanticipated and changing needs of our agencies, their clients, and the general human service needs of our community. We consider each visitor and all of our tenants as an opportunity to enhance our mission and to support our nonprofit partners.  We continue to work on the physical growth of our campus so that we can increase our capacity to do more. The current administration and board is inquiring about purchasing adjacent property in hopes of adding additional buildings to our current footprint. In addition to the 7 agencies on our waiting list, two current tenants are in need of additional space.

Management Comments by Organization
In order to provide more opportunities for the agencies on campus, we maintain a limited staff and keep expenses at a minimum.  Our goal is to enhance the endowment to create more income so that we may continue to provide low-cost space to the agencies on campus. Looking forward, we are hopeful to become more than just a "landlord" by offering free training seminars to the agencies staff, shared resources such as administrative services or combined purchasing power, as well as facilitating networking events for the agencies.

Financial Comments by Organization
Although we have an endowment, we must increase it and fundraising is always a challenge.  The only way we can do more for our agencies on campus or expand our services is by increasing the fund.  The interest from the endowment and the rent fee paid by the agencies help to defray the cost of maintenance and utilities that create our budget. One gift to the Center benefits all agencies on campus.
Financial Comments by Foundation Foundations and corporations are included with individual contributions as they are not separated in the 990 or audit.  Financial figures taken from IRS Form 990.  990 and audit are reconciled.  Financial information for 2017 taken solely from the audited financial statements as the Federal tax return was not available at time of review.
