 Atlas Insurance Honors Loveland Village with 2014 Lee Brown Award

SARASOTA, Fla. – October 20, 2014 – Atlas Insurance, one of southwest Florida’s leading commercial and personal insurance providers, is bestowing the 2014 Lee Brown Award to Loveland Village, a new planned residential community for adults with developmental disabilities through the Loveland Center in Venice, Florida. Named after Atlas Insurance founder Lee Brown, the award is accompanied by a $2,500 donation and is bestowed each year to an organization whose mission best represents the values of Mr. Brown. “The Village at Loveland Center is a trendsetting model of independent living for adults with developmental disabilities around the country,” states Rob Brown, President of Atlas Insurance. “Our team is very proud to support a mission that has such a monumental impact on so many lives.”

Established in 1962, Loveland Center’s mission is to help adults with developmental disabilities live their lives to the fullest. Loveland provides a college-type campus for Adult Day Training and Supported Employment services. It is the future site of the Loveland Village, a planned residential community with 1-4 bedroom rental apartments tailored for people with developmental disabilities and their natural supports. The Village will ensure a safe, affordable and comfortable place to live for generations to come. For more information on the Village, visit
