All children deserve to live in safe, nurturing homes where they can feel valued and loved.

Brevard Family Partnership and its community partners provide child abuse prevention, foster care and support, adoption, independent living and community outreach services to the children and families of Brevard County.

Child Abuse Prevention

Brevard C.A.R.E.S. is our unique child abuse prevention and family preservation program that has kept over 13,000 children and their families safe and in their homes and communities. A full-array of support services help families overcome stressors that often lead to abuse, neglect or abandonment.

Foster Care – Fostering Hope

Each year, hundreds of children and teens are removed from their homes due to abuse, neglect or abandonment. We manage foster care and related services for these youth and have quality foster parents who provide them safe and loving homes.


Adoption means a “forever home” for a child who has been permanently removed from his or her home and resides in foster, relative, or nonrelative care. We work in partnership with our case management agency IMPOWER to ensure the timeliest adoption for the children in our care.

Independent Living – Extended Foster Care

Our Independent Living program and Extended Foster Care system provides an array of services and education to teens and young adults in foster care. It's a support system that helps them make the transition from youth to successful adult!

What our Brevard community is saying

I praise your work and that of your organization all the time. I really felt like without your intervention I could have ended up in jail or dead. I feel like I am beginning a new chapter in my life and I am proud of who I am and what I have achieved.

The team that I have is great! I’m very grateful for all the help and support that has been given to me. Thank you C.A.R.E.S. for everything!

We wanted to make a difference and share the stability of our family with others. We have been foster parents now for eight years and currently have our 24th and 25th foster children in our home.

These are very caring and understanding staff at Brevard C.A.R.E.S. I feel so comfortable with them as well. They seem to do whatever is needed to help. Thank you for such a wonderful program!
