Gulf Coast Community Foundation Supports Venice Residents Through Community Nurse

The Giving Coast

Gulf Coast Community Foundation (Gulf Coast) recently provided a $20,000 grant to First Baptist Church of Venice through the Hurricane Ian Recovery Initiative to continue and expand the Faith Community Nurse Program. When Hurricane Ian hit, the community nurse provided instrumental mental health support to people who were struggling after the storm. The program is helping people who have been impacted by the hurricane, as well as the many volunteers staying at the church who are participating in recovery efforts. The church hosted 140 volunteers from 13 states including Arizona and Montana and members of the Missouri Disaster Relief group. They served 100 plus meals, three times per day, to anyone in need. They also collaborated with The Salvation Army Sarasota to offer 150 showers a day and 80 loads of laundry a day. The community nurse also conducts outreach in the community, and provides healthcare, counseling support, and palliative care. Together, with Gulf Coast’s generous donors and resilient community partners, impactful assistance is being offered to Hurricane Ian victims.
