Did you know that…
Why is this happening?
Children and families in Brevard become homeless is due to the widening gap between family income and the cost of housing. For a family to ‘afford’ a two-bedroom apartment, both parents need to work 2.4 jobs at minimum wage.
Unfortunately, as families are working to pay the rent, it leaves little money available for food, or healthcare, and when significant life event occurs, like a loss of employment, a medical emergency, or natural disaster, it tips the scales just enough that families are losing housing and not able to rebound without support.
Family Promise of Brevard has teamed up with LEAD Brevard for a Leadership Action Project to raise awareness about family homelessness in Brevard County and create a call to action. “You’re the Key” campaign (#yourethekey) is a call to action to join the Sheriff of Brevard County, and other community leaders to represent the key to ending homelessness.
Ambassadors are needed to help solve this major social issue and help spread the word about the need to end homelessness, by being featured in our social media campaign, volunteer at Family Promise or with anyone of our caring partners below.
