MISSION: To inspire and enable positive change in our community through philanthropy, volunteerism and advocacy.
Current Awareness and Fundraising Focus for South Sarasota county:
In July of 2020, an Executive Order was issued allowing evictions to be filed in the courts even though there was a moratorium on evictions due to COVID19. Throughout 2020 there were over 539 eviction lawsuits filed in Sarasota County and that number has continued to climb in the 1st quarter of 2021.
We fully expect to see a “Tsunami” of evictions hitting our community once the moratorium is lifted with hundreds of families, individuals and seniors becoming homeless if we do not intervene.
You can help keep people in their homes and stem the tide on evictions in our community! With your participation we can help hard-working, responsible people who, if they are the average working person, are living paycheck to paycheck, have little to no savings, and are spending more than 30% of their income on housing.

The national definition of homelessness includes sleeping the previous night in a place lacking water or electricity. A parent does everything in their power to prevent this from happening for their children, including paying for a hotel with their paycheck or staying with friends and relatives.
As a consequence, these families are not considered homeless and do not qualify for federal and state funds and assistance.
