Who We are
We believe every child deserves a home.
We believe families should stay together.
We believe strong families create stronger communities.
We believe families can end their homelessness with our community’s support.
At Family Promise of Brevard, our mission is to help homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence through a collaborative, community-based response that provides families the support and resources they need to put themselves on a path towards long-term housing stability.
Our vision is that every family in Brevard County has safe affordable housing and the resource to achieve self-sufficiency and lasting independence.
Right now in Brevard County, there are over 2500 families who have no stable place to call home due to the widening gap between a family’s income and the cost of affordable housing. They sleep in cars, motels, or doubled up with others, worrying about their safety and where their next meal will come from.
Imagine being able to make an impact on a family at-risk of or experiencing homelessness. You can change their life – forever. Through our three-pillar programs; Shelter, Prevention and Stability, and our network of community collaborations, we provide effective solutions to ending and preventing family homelessness in Brevard County. We prioritize families and keeping the family unit together as they gain a fresh start and a stronger future.
Our solution for ending family homelessness is through community-driven collaborations. As leaders in Brevard County on the issue of family homelessness, we strive to use existing resources rather than recreate services that already exist. This collaborative approach across multiple organizations, allows us to provide a holistic response to housing instability. Through this model, we are able to focus our efforts and resources on empowering and guiding families toward stronger futures, while keeping them together during one of the most stressful and difficult times in their lives.
