Neighborhood Services

Each year, the Neighborhood Services’ team collectively brings in grant dollars and facilitates essential services for Manatee County residents that have contributed to a high quality of life as proven by continued rising property values and home sales, stable employment and high consumer spending. 

We provide support that fills gaps in Manatee residents’ lives to help them remain employed or become reemployed, stay in school, rehabilitate, gain new skills or make ends meet. We facilitate, partner with non-profit agencies and organizations and oversee human services that fulfill a wide range of needs. Our efforts reach the following:
