Poverty and early traumatic experiences make a child more likely to experience damaging developmental effects and physical and mental health issues. Locally 52 percent of babies are born into poverty, according to data from First 1,000 Days Sarasota County, a local initiative dedicated to supporting the wellbeing of mothers and babies. In response, a flexible $300,000 grant from the Charles & Margery Barancik Foundation has positioned Forty Carrots Family Center to increase services for families in Sarasota and Manatee counties with programs that have proven, lifelong positive effects. Over the next three years, the organization will be taking a strategic look at the community’s needs and develop an action plan in order to expand their services and pursue other opportunities for growth.
