At this time of crisis, leaders of churches, faith communities, and advocates for homes for the homeless will gather to pray and share food at a “Spring Fest” at Sanctuary of Sarasota at 1005 North Washington Blvd, behind Dealer’s Choice at noon on Saturday, March 15th.  
The City of Sarasota has issued a notice to vacate the homeless camp which Trinity Without Borders provides support services. Vallerie Guillory, from Trinity without Borders, said: “ It’s a given that the camp has to be closed, we need funding released so people can have homes not a place on the floor.”
At noon, representatives from Mary Mother of Jesus Inclusive Catholic Community, St. Andrew United Church of Christ , Trinity Baptist Church of Newton, Vision House, Cares Outreach and other supporters will form a prayer circle to pray for a just and compassionate resolution to the homeless camp closures in which the homeless will be provided adequate food, housing, and  other necessary services.
