Community Coalition

It takes a village to raise a child

The Community Coalition for Children partners with the corporate/professional community, religious institutions and community leaders to meet the needs of at-risk children served by the Sarasota Y. Partners provide hands-on volunteerism and raise funds that create experiences and opportunities for our community’s less fortunate children.
