SUNCOAST PARTNERS

Rather than start many outreaches, we take a different approach.

We select local and global non-profit organizations that are already making a difference in the lives of others. We then use our resources to help further their growth and impact. We encourage everyone at Suncoast to regularly serve with one of our Partners. There are no long term commitments, and you don’t need special skills to make a difference.

BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast has a mission to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. Suncoast raises awareness of the organization, provides volunteers to mentor children, encourages families and BBBS to attend free events and Suncoast outreach opportunities

EMPOWERMENT GULFCOAST

Empowerment Gulfcoast, Inc. assists working young adults, ages 18 to 35, who need a supportive hand up. Needs vary, from financial help to guidance or mentoring (advice, encouragement, direct to resources, budgeting, etc.), but the goal is the same: Empowerment Gulfcoast wants to give the current generation an opportunity to move forward. For those without a strong network of family and friends, Empowerment is there. All requests are carefully vetted.

MOTHERS HELPING MOTHERS

Mothers Helping Mothers has been supporting families in need since 1990. They are an all-volunteer, not-for-profit organization that provides basic necessities such as clothing and baby items, free of charge to families in need. All items are donated or purchased through grant funding or private contributions.

Due to Covid-19 we are reopening our store to shoppers by appointment only.  This will help limit shoppers in the store to keep everyone safe. The online link to request an appointment is http://www.mhmsarasota.com/clients

Clients may shop only once every four months and if requesting baby items, must show proof of pregnancy and be within 30 days of due date to receive those items. Expecting mothers can return early for baby items even if it is not their normal time to return. 

Donations are accepted after August 11th. You may drop off at their location 5933 North Washington, Sarasota FL 34243 on Wednesdays and Thursdays between 9am and 11am.

Donations are accepted at Suncoast anytime during office hours Mon – Thurs 9am – 4pm.
