The best time to stop homelessness is BEFORE it happens.
Our homeless prevention and diversion program, is designed to coordinate a single point of entry for front-end homeless prevention. We work with at-risk households helping families quickly stabilize during a housing crisis. The program provides families with short term case management and financial assistance for overdue rent, mortgage and utilities, as well as helps provide funding for first and last month’s rent and security deposits.

If you are a homeless family with minor children, or at risk of losing your housing, please dial 211 on your phone, or text your ZIP code to 898211 to be connected to a helpline specialist. Family Promise of Brevard has partnered with 211 Brevard to provide a streamlined process for referrals. Once a family is determined to meet initial eligibility, a staff member will make contact with the family to set an interview and explore next steps. Family Promise of Brevard is unable accept walk-in referrals at any of its locations. Due to COVID -19, our shelter program is temporarily suspended. We are however still providing assistance with emergency funds, rapid re-housing and homelessness prevention.
