Background Statement
The Sarasota YMCA has been at the heart of Sarasota since 1945 and is widely recognized for having innovative programs and outstanding facilities. The Sarasota YMCA is a tax-exempt, non-profit association that operates on funding provided by government grants, private/public grants, memberships and program fees, donations and endowments. In our 2015 fiscal year (July 1, 2014 – June 30, 2015), we touched over 64,000 lives through four fitness branches and more than 60 youth and family development programs within four counties.
The Sarasota YMCA has earned a reputation for its services for at-risk youth and their families.  Additionally, our emphasis on youth and their families is supported through our runaway, homeless and at-risk programs, our child welfare program and a variety of counseling and educational outreach services. Our four fitness facilities include three teen centers, an Alpine climbing tower, a Carolina climbing wall, the Selby Aquatics Center, a 50-meter competitive pool with a 20-meter dive well and the CJ Lofino Splash and Water parks.
Our Y is able to help people in every life stage find a place to belong. Many people are first exposed to the Y as children through swim lessons, youth sports and summer camp. In Sarasota, a child may also first find the Y through free family counseling or at an afterschool literacy program developed for low performing students. Teenagers may enter YMCA doors through our youth shelter or at any of the National Safe Places in Sarasota County for which the Y provides oversight.
Some families come together at the Y’s water park, while other families bond over a love of reading they never knew they had thanks to a parenting and education program the Y hosts in family living rooms. Some families are brought together through adoption, which the Y’s Safe Children Coalition oversees locally. Adults find physical fitness at the Y and friendship through social clubs. They may also discover their passion for volunteering as a youth sports coach or learn a new sport like volleyball at age 60. No matter what stage of life someone may be in, they will find a place to belong at the Sarasota YMCA.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President

At the Sarasota YMCA, we believe that every child has potential, every person deserves a healthy life and every community is connected by a sense of social responsibility. Our experiences unite us as we learn, grow and thrive together.

Experiences at the Y have a positive impact on the thousands of people we reach each year. Our goal is to provide support to empower young people, resources for people of all ages to live healthier and opportunities to strengthen the foundation of our communities through connections and volunteerism. For example:

  • Youth caught in webs of hopelessness, fear or absent parents are provided a safe haven at our shelter.
  • Many of our county’s abused or neglected children will be connected to the Y’s vast network of loving foster parents. Ultimately, many of them will be adopted, while others may be reunited with their rehabilitated families.
  • Children lacking a permanent home, sometimes living with a homeless parent, might miss out on schooling if it were not for the Y, which provides support services to assist children in attending their schools.
  • Students enrolled in mentoring programs reach educational and personal development objectives they otherwise would not dream possible.
  • Our swim teams compete on local, state, national and international levels, enriching the lives of the swimmers.
  • Seniors live healthier and happier lives as they participate in the YMCA fitness experience.

These are but a small sampling of YMCA success stories. Our YMCA changes lives - one child, one person at a time. By empowering children, youth and adults of all ages, we are empowering individuals and building a better community. We believe positive life changing experiences promote acceptance and build self esteem for all.

For these reasons, I have chosen to volunteer and support the Sarasota Family YMCA.

Statement from the CEO/Executive Director
Many thanks to the Community Foundation of Sarasota, Gulf Coast Community Foundation, Manatee Community Foundation and the Patterson Foundation for working together to make the Giving Partner available for charitable organizations to connect with the community and with donors. 
Serving as CEO of the Sarasota Family YMCA is truly an honor and a great opportunity. Widely known for ground-breaking programs and services to those most in need, the Sarasota YMCA has been making a difference in the community and in the lives of many individuals since 1945. It is a privilege to be able to serve the Sarasota community on so many levels, from children in foster care to at-risk teens in our Y-Achievers program to seniors who look to the Y for both exercise and friendships. Sarasota is a very generous and caring community with a bright future.

At the Y, we live our mission by changing lives and making a difference every day. We are a diverse organization made up of people of all ages and from every walk of life working side by side to strengthen our community. We share the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility—everything we do stems from it. Great years lie ahead of us and together we will continue to make a difference.

In 1997 the Sarasota YMCA became the lead agency of a coalition of twelve community agencies in the privatization of Child Welfare/Foster Care and related services in Sarasota County. Today, the Y serves as the Lead Agency for Community Based Care in three counties on the West Coast of Florida - Sarasota, Manatee and DeSoto. Under the leadership of the Sarasota YMCA, the Safe Children Coalition (SCC) is a collaboration between the Y and many local community entities who together provide a continuum of child welfare services for children who have been abused, neglected or abandoned. Child protection services include foster parent recruitment, training and licensure, adoptions, foster care, protective supervision and voluntary family services. 
The SCC is a community coalition blending available resources to assist abused and neglected children and their families in reaching permanency in a safe and stable environment.
More than 2,265 children are served annually in the program.

Program Success Monitoring
Outcome and performance data is collected in the State of Florida system called FSFN (Florida Safe Families Network). FSFN data elements include placement, legal status, legal custody, legal goal, case type, case assignment, case creation and closure, as well as other numerous data elements related to the child and family.  Case managers are responsible for entering case planning and services narratives into FSFN (within 48 hours of events) to ensure that all appropriate parties are updated on case progress, as well as related federal/state requirements.   
Program Success Examples
   At an annual foster parent appreciation luncheon, guests were surprised by a keynote speaker who hadn’t even finished elementary school yet. Eleven year old Sky shared her adoption story with the group:
   “When I was one year old, my parents did not want me anymore. They simply passed me on down to my biological aunt who could not take care of me either. So I went into foster care at age two and stayed with this loving couple who took care of me and made me a part of their family.
   This couple loved me with all of their heart and wanted to be my 'Forever Family.' At four years old, I was adopted. They are now my parents who have had me for several years now as their daughter, and have put up with me all this time. I love them so very much because they loved me, adopted me, and gave me a home.
   Since adopting me, my parents continue to be foster parents and have adopted my brother and are in the process of adopting a little sister to be a part of our 'Forever Family'."
The Sarasota YMCA is a place where you can challenge yourself to learn a new skill or hobby, foster connections with friends through our lifelong learning programs or bring your loved ones together through our many family-centered activities.  At the Y, it's not about the activity you choose as much as it is about the benefits of living healthier on the inside as well as the outside. 
The Y's Adventure Club provides safe, supervised environments for children in before- and afterschool care, and includes programs to improve social behavior, promote early development and support educational achievement of children.  Currently, Adventure Club serves children in grades K-5 from seven Sarasota schools at six afterschool and two before-school sites as well as afterschool care for children from five Hardee County schools.  Full-day summer camp is offered for children in Kindergarten through eigth grade.

Program Success Examples

Nicholas is a third grader at a very large afterschool program, who was struggling to complete his homework and keep his grades up. His mom was desperate to get him help, but her busy days and late schedule made it very difficult for Nicholas to have homework time afterschool, and his grades were dropping. She turned to her son’s afterschool staff to ask for help. Nicholas received on one-on-one support to make sure his homework was complete and accurate. The staff also included incentives and rewards for completed homework and improved grades. Nicholas now is a much more confident student, and his grades are improving. His mom is very relieved and thankful that the YMCA afterschool staff took the time to make sure her son had the support he needed to succeed in school.

Since 1991, the Y has continued to expand its community based programs by adding unique services to benefit families and children.  The YMCA Youth Shelter provides temporary housing and safe care 24 hours a day, seven days a week for children between the ages of 10 and 18 who have run away, are experiencing conflict or have been locked out of their homes.  The Y’s Family Management Services Program is free and includes classes for anger management, improving self-esteem and parenting/communication skills.  For children without permanent homes, the Y operates Schoolhouse Link, an education support program that works closely with homeless shelters, community agencies and the School Board of Sarasota County.  Teens who are facing expulsion from public schools are referred by the School Board of Sarasota County to the Y’s Triad Alternative School.  Triad was developed in cooperation with our county’s public school district and provides academic and behavioral skill building to youth.

Program Success Monitoring
Program success is tracked using data collected through a number of sources.  Sources include school records (grades, absences, test scores, suspensions, etc.), testing knowledge gained through pre- and post-tests of specific training, sign-in sheets at trainings and events, self reporting of satisfaction, completion of a specific curriculum, counselor notes, interviews with clients, discussions with teachers and other tracking methodologies depending on the specific outcome or output.
Program Success Examples


Oscar, a 15 year old male, came to the Shelter after an escalation in family conflict. Due to his threats of violence against his family, a younger sibling was afraid of him. In addition to dealing with family turmoil, Oscar was not doing well at school. While at the Shelter, we assisted him in attending school daily, provided tutoring to help him get back on track in school and helped him learn life skills such as responsibility, respect, work ethic, planning, goal setting and conflict resolution. After residing at the Shelter and receiving individual and family counseling, Oscar was able to return home.

Through their participation in family counseling, Oscar and his father were able to resolve some of their misunderstandings and began the process of repairing their relationship. Oscar developed a stronger connection to his father, and both learned the value of trust and positive communication. These lessons not only help father and son during family time, but also have paved the way for them to work together, which may not have been possible prior to Oscar’s involvement with the Shelter. Since leaving the Shelter, Oscar has secured two jobs. One job is at a grocery store and the other is with his father, with whom he had a history of intense conflict.


The Sarasota YMCA believes that positive change only comes about when we invest in our children, our health and our neighbors. In order to meet the needs of our community, the Y developed the Operation Graduation Continuum of Care (the Continuum).

The Continuum programs emphasize providing direct support to at-risk, minority, low-income, low-achieving, and other disadvantaged youth, as well as youth who are not on track to graduate and those at greater risk of becoming involved with gangs, substance use, criminal activity and/or any other delinquent behaviors. These youth are identified and referred to programs by school administrators, teachers, parents or self. Age appropriate programs are Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY), Operation Graduation (OG), and Youth Mentoring, which includes YMCA Mentor (Y-Mentor) and YMCA Achievers (Achievers).

Program Success Examples
Manuela participated in HIPPY with her daughter and son, ages seven and six. Although she spoke very little English, with the help of HIPPY, Manuela learned how to be engaged in her children’s education. Manuela was struggling to teach herself English and purchased an English dictionary to help her with words she encountered when assisting her children with homework.
Our HIPPY program offered ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) classes for our Spanish speaking families. Manuela attended the class twice each week and says that the teacher really helped her learn to communicate in English. Manuela says she is now much better prepared to teach her children. She helps them with homework daily and has become actively involved at their school.
Manuela says that HIPPY has helped her to be healthier, be her children’s first teacher and be involved in the school and community, and more importantly, has helped her make sure her children are ready to succeed in school.
