5th Voting Meeting Presenters (l to r) –  Sheila Miller, Robin Hain, Stacey Monroe

On March 20, 2020 98 of our 188 members were in attendance at our fifth voting meeting.  Our presenters did a great job of introducing us to three worthy Sarasota charities.

Congratulations to all of them.

Child Protection Center, Inc. was the selected charity

We raised $17,900

In addition to the members’ donations, we were awarded a $5,000 matching donation grant by The Richard Schulze Foundation – making a total donation of $22,900 to Child Protection Center, Inc.

The Child Protection Center’s (CPC) programs provide a comprehensive approach to prevent, intervene and treat child abuse.  The Child Protection Team evaluates alleged child abuse and neglect, evaluates risk factors and provides recommendations for interventions.  There are four programs supported by CPC – but the program that our donation will be used to support is the Children and Families Supervised Visitation Program.  When children’s safety is at a heightened risk due to parental substance abuse, domestic violence, or mental illness, this program provides a neutral, safe place for children to maintain a relationship with both parents.  Ongoing parent and child contact, through supervised visitation, has been shown to be crucial to a child’s mental health and ability to build a healthy relationship with the non-custodial parent.  This program is the only non-profit agency in Sarasota County that provides onsite, structured, supervised services to families.
