The Suncoast Foundation for Handicapped Children was founded to support local non-profits that provide services for special needs children.
The Suncoast Foundation has constructed buildings valued at over $20 Million dollars in the Sarasota, Venice, and North Port area. These buildings are occupied by six local non-profit agencies.
Non-profit agencies which occupy these buildings include The Haven, The Sertoma Speech Clinic, The Florida Center, Loveland Village, Children First, and Sarasota County Special Olympics. They experience a significant savings with an annual lease payment of only $1 which allows service and program monies to remain untouched and directed to clients who need it the most. Program and services provided by these non-profit agencies annually impacts approximately 8,000 children, teens and adults with special needs and their families.
