ACCOMPLISHMENTS: Provided rent free office space for 18 nonprofit organizations, which allowed those nonprofits to provide more services to more clients. Those agencies serve approximately 10,000 families and individuals per month.

 In a collaboration with All Faiths Food Bank, we now host a semi-monthly mobile food pantry at the Center open to clients of our agencies and to the general public. Food is provided for over 200 individuals at each distribution.   

We completed the licensing and site work for the new Sally and Sam Shapiro Babies and Children's Medical Center (to be operated by the Sarasota County Health Department) now under construction at the Center and scheduled for completion in July, 2014.   

 We have raised over $1.8 million of the $2 million cost of clinic construction. 

 We have formed a Space Committee to plan the renovation of the 2 buildings that will be vacated when the clinic opens. The Committee is accepting applications for nonprofit tenants to occupy that space and evaluating which ones will provide for the greatest needs of our community, in collaboration with other Center-based agencies.

 GOALS: This year, we will have approx. 7,000 sq. ft. additional space  available for leasing to nonprofits.  It is our intention to select a tenant, or tenants, whose missions address the needs of the community as a whole and whose impact will be widespread.   Some examples of this are organizations that provide hunger relief county-wide and those that address the critical needs of our homeless population or provide unique services that are unduplicated in the community.

We will raise the remaining $200K necessary to complete the construction of the children's clinic. We will host a series of fundraising events to accommodate this need, as well as our need to renovate newly vacated space and expand the scope of services available onsite.   

Our Board of Directors and staff, in collaboration with other community leaders, will begin exploring opportunities to expand our services to South Sarasota County, an area that is currently underserved.   

In addition to charging  no rent, we will continue striving to reduce maintenance fees for all of our agencies, with the goal of eventually charging as little as two dollars per square foot. 

The Glasser/Schoenbaum Human Services Center has been providing rent free office and conference space to nonprofit agencies for 24 years.  The money saved by these agencies has allowed them to deliver more than 80 programs that currently serve approximately 10,000 individuals per month.  In our 24 years of existence, 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.


  • We need to promote community awareness of our Center for many reasons, including ensuring that those who seek services know that they can find them here, those that provide services know that they can refer their clients here, and concerned community members with the desire and ability to improve the quality of life for the underserved realize that by supporting our Center, they are supporting not one organization, but 17 individual nonprofits offering a multitude of services in a unique “one stop” location.
  •  We need to raise an additional $200,000 to complete our clinic construction.
  • We need to raise funds to support our ongoing operating costs on behalf of our agencies and to strengthen our endowment to ensure Center longevity for our community's long range benefit.
  •  We need to raise approximately $100,000 to complete the renovation of 2 buildings on campus that will be vacated when the clinic begins operating in it’s new facility
  •  We need to raise additional funds to replace 5 agency air conditioning units that are over 20 years old and on the brink of permanent failure. 


Statement from the CEO/Executive Director

The Glasser/Schoenbaum Human Services Center allows families and individuals to access multiple social services in one location and is accessible to public transportation. We have been nationally recognized as a unique service provider. We are on the forefront  in conversations with other community leaders, both public and private, in identifying and meeting some of our County’s most urgent concerns, such as expanding services to the homeless and to areas in South Sarasota County that remain grossly underserved.  

The concept of the Center has become more important as a result of our economy. People who have not previously had to rely on social services now find themselves in desperate need of assistance. New issues such as foreclosure, unemployment and costly or non-existent healthcare have created an increased demand for already over-burdened agencies that address legal aid, children's health needs, the handicapped, joblessness, homelessness, mental health and substance abuse, family and teen counseling, tutoring and adult education, issues unique to our Hispanic community, and early pregnancy and childcare support. All these services and more can be found on our “Center for Caring”.

 I welcome you to learn more about our Center. Please visit our website at or call me at (941) 365-4545 to schedule a campus tour. There are ample opportunities to volunteer to the nonprofit of your choice, available via “Volunteer Community Connections”, another agency within our complex. 

Jay W. Berman, Executive Director

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President

As President of the Board of the Glasser/Schoenbaum Human Services Center, I have the privilege to witness the impact our organization has on our community on almost a daily basis. The Center has grown immensely over the last 25 years, as has the need for the many services available here. With the addition of our semi-monthly food distribution pantry, administered on site by All Faiths Food Bank, and the busy construction site on campus that will soon become the Sally and Sam Shapiro Babies and Children's Medical Center, we have much to be proud of. Yet, there is much left to be accomplished. Florida remains one of the states with the largest homeless populations and one of the highest foreclosure rates in the nation. 


In taking on the financial burden and construction management of the new children’s clinic, our organization has taken on a new role in this community by recognizing and meeting an urgent county-wide need for increased access to pediatric healthcare. We remain  an important voice in addressing these and other critical issues, participating in all levels of discussion from community forums to private sessions with government agencies and other nonprofit entities.


 We are fortunate to have an endowment that enables us to meet our operating budget on a yearly basis. It is essential that we remain careful stewards of these funds, thereby ensuring that we can maintain our aging buildings and continue to provide office space for decades to come to the many agencies that, without our support, would be forced to shut their doors.   These agencies pay only a small monthly utilities and maintenance fee. 


We are not content with being just space providers. We work hard at raising funds to provide for the additional needs of our community. We are proud to have raised almost 2 million dollars in the last few years through private donations, fundraising events and both private and federal grant awards. These funds have enabled us to build the new clinic. We will continue our fundraising efforts to provide more services to more people. Only with the support of our community can we continue to reach and exceed our goals.


I welcome you to visit our Center, tour our agencies, meet our Executive Director and join us in our mission to improve the quality of life for all of our residents and for the nonprofit organizations who serve them. As the old adage says, it takes a village . . . and we invite you to join ours.

Our campus consists of thirteen buildings that provide nonprofit agencies with office and conference space, charging only a small 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, as well as the extensive capital campaign that has enabled us to build a new health care facility for Sarasota County, 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 Monitored By
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.
Examples of Program Success

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. We have now broken ground on a major addition to our complex, one that has long been in the making and will allow approximately 1,000 more children per month access to health care on our campus. Our new agency, Unidos Now, has referred many new clients to existing agencies, including Gulf Coast Legal Services and Healthy Start.  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, and we are confident we will reach our financial goals for this project within the coming year.  Meanwhile, we are actively interviewing potential nonprofit agencies who have applied for space at the Center.

Program Comments by Organization
It is a daily challenge to meet the unanticipated and changing needs of our agencies and their clients.  Our campus is visited daily by individuals from all facets of life, each with their own unique needs and challenges.  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 both the physical growth of our campus and increasing our capacity to do more.

Leadership 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.  The challenge of enhancing the endowment to create more income is a never ending challenge.  As the agencies on campus experience budget cuts, it is the goal of the Center to charge them less and to raise whatever funds necesary to do so.

Financials Comments
Financial Comments by Organization
Fundraising is always a challenge.  Although we have an endowment, we must increase it.  This is the only way we can do more for our agencies on campus.  The interest from the endowment and the stipend paid by the agencies to defray the cost of maintenance and utilities create our budget. By supporting the Center, one gift benefits all 17 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.
