SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY SEP 29, 2018

In response to the economic and environmental impact of Red Tide in Sarasota County, JFCS has set up a special emergency fund to support outreach services through JFCS’ Building Strong Families Program. This program supports those who rely on the service industries for employment and have found themselves with fewer working hours or employment opportunities due to Red Tide’s impact. Since the beginning of July, JFCS has identified an increase of approximately 40 percent in homeless prevention requests. Many JFCS clients  primary source of income is derived from the hospitality industry, such as restaurants and hotels. Donations can be made by contacting Sherry Gluchov at 941.366.2224, ext. 141 or sgluchov@jfcs-cares.org.
