Compeer Sarasota founder Ann Hartka

Compeer Sarasota was recently awarded a $95,000 grant to serve children from 5 to 17 with mental health disorders in Sarasota and Manatee counties. The grant, given by Compeer, based in Buffalo, New York, will be used to reach cities with high-growth populations where children currently remain on a waiting list, such as North Port and Venice. The Compeer Youth Mentoring Program encourages youth with mental health disorders to build self-confidence, self-reliance and healthy relationships through one-to-one mentorships.
