Building Campaign

Our Problem

We are bursting at the seams.

The Existing Facility is small, people must wait outside and food reserves are stored in a shed. 

We are helping more people in Sarasota and Charlotte counties than ever. But we don’t have enough room to serve our clients and our volunteers are literally falling over each other trying to keep up with the workload.

The Solution

We are looking for your help to build our new home.

Our new facility will include a lobby, running water, bathrooms, a kitchen, a large food pantry, three offices and a meeting room.

An Artistic Rendering of the new building.

It will include:

  • 1. Storm and disaster emergency generator and food storage capacity.
  • 2. Desperately needed office space for caseworkers to evaluate and help people apply for social programs.
  • 3. Expand homeless prevention capability with budget analysis, EHEAP, LIHEAP, Access Florida rent and utility assistance applications.
  • 4. Additional refrigeration to keep produce and other perishable foods fresh.
  • 5. A loading dock for large deliveries.

The Building Location

The new building will be built just south of the existing building on property being donated by the Englewood United Methodist Church.
