HLAS is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization that is managed by an all-volunteer staff. This means 100% of the donations and membership fees we receive can be used to support our education, advocacy and support mission.

We are grateful to our Board of Trustees for their leadership and welcome any interested member to attend one of our quarterly Board Meetings to have their voice heard.
  • Our Board meetings are held quarterly.
  • Each is held at the Center for Arts and Humanities, 1226 N. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota
