PORT CHARLOTTE – Loveland Center recently received a $10,000 grant from the Charlotte Community Foundation to increase its essential service provision to children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Charlotte County by more than 50%.

“We had outgrown our previous space,” said Jennifer Bushinger-Ortiz, Loveland’s chief philanthropy officer. “Our previous space was under 1,000 square feet and it was in a shared facility. It had shared restrooms, so we had to turn down some individuals.”

The south Sarasota County-based nonprofit that provides live skills training to developmentally disabled people had already been looking for a standalone facility in Charlotte County when COVID-19 hit.
