The Interior Design Society Sarasota Chapter (IDSSC) is giving ALSO Youth's Sarasota drop-in center a makeover!

IDSSC has hand-picked ALSO Youth as the local organization to generously provide their time, services, and expertise for a much-needed facelift. ALSO celebrates our 25th Anniversary this year, and what a better way to celebrate?!


ALSO's Sarasota location (1470 Blvd. of the Arts), has served as a sanctuary for LGBTQIA youth and their families since 2003. The organization has survived many years of political and social uncertainty, thanks to the ongoing support of our community. It is so timely and needed that the youth of ALSO receive help from design experts to claim their space for the incoming generation!

Currently, IDSSC has a "live" GoFundMe page to raise funds for the materials and services that cannot be obtained through donations. Specifically, they are raising funds for ALSO Youth Sarasota's needs:

  • Flooring

  • Furniture

  • Paint

  • Construction

  • Drywall

Right now, the bulk of the project is tentatively scheduled for late-March, however, ALSO and IDSSC will likely be posting updates online (here and on Facebook) regarding the project's progress and needs. Please stay tuned!
