Gulf Coast Community Foundation Awards Family Promise of South Sarasota County with $10,000 Grant for Rental Assistance

The Giving Coast

amily Promise of South Sarasota County (FPSSC) is pleased to have received a very charitable $10,000 grant from Gulf Coast Community Foundation made possible through the Jarrett Family Fund. Gulf Coast Community Foundation has been a strong supporter of FPSSC since 2014 when FPSSC’s Board of Trustees was initially formed. All grant funds will be used to provide for rental assistance through FPSSC’s Open Doors program.

Jennifer Fagenbaum, Executive Director of Family Promise of South Sarasota County stated, “Rising rental costs and the lack of attainable and affordable housing are causing a serious hardship for families in South Sarasota County. Due to the increase in rent expenses, local non-profits are seeing the need for additional funding to be able to assist in preventing homelessness. Family Promise of South Sarasota County will continue to advocate with Gulf Coast Community Foundation to create affordable housing, but this grant is vital as a large number of families in Sarasota County are spending more than 50% of their income on housing costs per month.”
