The Suncoast Foundation for Handicapped Children was founded to support local non-profits that provide services for people with disabilities.

The Suncoast Foundation has constructed over 75,000 sqft of facilities 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, Challenger Baseball 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.

Our mission is made possible by the commitment of local volunteers who share their time,
talents and energy to implement, manage and sustain the organization.
