Community Partners
Just like The Florida Center, our community partners strive to make children a priority. The Suncoast Foundation (formerly the Suncoast Foundation for Handicapped Children) is a very special partner, having supplied valuable support through buildings and facility improvements for over 30 years. Civic groups such as Kiwanis, Sertoma, Lions Clubs and others work to make a difference by donating valuable resources.

Community Partnerships come in many forms, including donations, sponsorships, in-kind giving, agency collaborations, volunteer forces and more.
