These buildings are currently occupied by Children First, Community Haven for Adults and Children with Disabilities, Over the years, Suncoast Charities for Children has provided several grants to the Suncoast Foundation so that necessary repairs and maintenance could be made to these aging campus locations.
Suncoast Charities for Children is a 501(c)(3) that provides funding support to Suncoast Foundation for Handicapped Children, Inc. , which over the years has constructed area facilities valued at over $20 million dollars. These facilities are located in North Port, Venice, and Sarasota and last year provided services to approx. 8,000 special needs children, teens, adults and their families. Net proceeds raised from special events help maintain some of these aging facilities and support special project requests. This is beneficial so that the non-profits occupying these facilities for only $1 per year, can direct their program and service money towards the clients they serve.
Would you recommend Suncoast Charities for Children?
Dismissive of my interest, terse email communication, and certainly did not encourage my participation. Made no attempt to find a suitable opportunity though I offered to accommodate their needs. Left me with poor impression of the individual responsible for attracting volunteers.
