The Community Foundation of Sarasota County has awarded eight local nonprofit organizations significant funding to offer, expand and enhance health care assistance directly to individuals in Sarasota County.

Nearly half of this funding will address the mental health needs of families and children by connecting individuals with treatments, therapists, and networks of support.

The organizations receiving funding are the following:

  • Beyond the Spectrum
  • Child Protection Center
  • Englewood Community Care Clinic
  • First Step of Sarasota
  • Forty Carrots Family Center
  • Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida
