      Background Statement

      The Glasser Schoenbaum Human Services Center houses 18 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 which involved securing funding to build the 14 buildings which constitute the Center. It was built through an alliance of private and public philanthropy with a consortium of banking institutions to pay 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 26th year of existence and are proud to say that we have saved the agencies on our campus more than $15 million dollars, as well as provided them with a professional 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 advantage of our entire community.

      Statement from the CEO/Executive Director

      The Glasser Schoenbaum Human Services is excited to celebrate its 26th year of continuous service to our local nonprofit community and to those they serve. In 2015, our campus extended a helping hand to over 28,000 individuals and benefitted from over $14 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.

      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 campus of 14 buildings 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 benefits their clients and our community.

      Short Term Success

       With the addition of one nonprofit agency to our campus this year, and our projected ability to include 2 more in the coming year, we are confident that the need for our services will continue to grow, as will our ability to meet this need.

      Long Term Success

       The benefits our agencies combined services provide to our community are long ranging and widely varied. Each year, our annual agency survey continues to show an increased number of total clients and an increase in available services. This serves to enhance the quality of life for not only those that seek our help, but for all the residents of Sarasota County.


      Program Success Monitoring
      Each year, a survey is taken among the agencies to determine the number of programs they deliver and the number of clients they serve.  All agencies on campus have their own systems in place to measure the success of their 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 complex.  Our conference space, which includes 3 sizeable self-contained rooms with access to audio/visual equipment, is booked by multiple agencies on a daily basis. Our fundraising and development efforts have enabled us to largely fund the new Children's Health Center.  We actively interview potential nonprofit agencies who have applied for space at the Center as space become available.

      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 the vacant property to the south of our parking lot in hopes of adding additional buildings to our current footprint. Two local human service agencies have expressed interest in partnering with us to provide an additional building for their organizations.

      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 to that we may 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, 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 create our budget. By supporting the Center, one gift benefits all agencies on campus.
