1990’s

The Discover Program, created in 1988 to provide support for single mothers seeking financial independence through vocational training, was turned over to the Women’s Resource Center in 1991. Four continuing projects remained in the early 90s: Teen Court, Resurrection House, Newtown Library and the YMCA Youth Shelter. In 1993-94, the Gulf Coast World of Science (now GWIZ) was an added project. In 1994-95 two new projects were introduced; the Back to School Fair (providing health screenings, and supplies for students in need) and Park Restoration. The 20th anniversary of membership in AJLI was celebrated in February 1996. JLS also received a commendation from Florida Governor Lawton Chiles for 40 years of community service. JLS established Sarasota County’s first wheelchair-accessible playground at Twin Lakes Park. Named the Dr. Robert E. Perkins Playground, the League received its third Golden Gavel Award in 1998 from the Sarasota-Herald Tribune for best overall community project in a three-county area. In 1998, JLS went through an extensive refocusing effort and adopted “Women’s Issues” as the new focus area. “League Lines”, an extremely informative meeting agenda, was born in 1998 and becomes a permanent publication. The League completes its fifth and final park restoration project at Venice By-Pass Park. Overall, this five-year initiative was responsible for over $500,000 in improvements to the Sarasota County park system, helping to make it one of Florida’s premier park systems.
