Adopt

The adoption process makes the chosen child a legal member of the adoptive family with all the rights and privileges of a biological child. Adoption is permanent for a child; it means the child has a forever family who will be there for them through the good times and the challenges. Give a child the love and security that he or she truly deserves, and make your house a home to an extraordinary child!

Foster

We are looking to grow our foster parent team because we need more individuals willing to open up their hearts and homes to a child in foster care. Children in our community need a safe, loving, temporary place to call home while their family situation stabilizes. Brevard Family Partnership manages foster care services for children and youth in Brevard Florida who have been removed from their homes. 

Facts about Fostering

Make a Difference

Through a donation or volunteering your time, your support can change the life of a child! Brevard Family Partnership’s mission is to protect children, strengthen families, and change lives by preventing child abuse and the operation and management of a comprehensive, integrated, community-based System of Care for abused, abandoned, and neglected children and their families. 

Help Children in Need

We have been fostering for almost eight years. What we find helpful is to try to connect with fellow foster families. Leaning on one another makes life easier than feeling you are going through the struggles alone. Several life situations will happen. It is ok not to know how to handle all scenarios. Foster care is a journey, and like anything else, you gain experience as you go along.

Our President and CEO, Phil Scarpelli recently hosted a roundtable discussion in his home with several youths and members of the Brevard Youth Leadership Council.

The video took place in partnership with Dr. Angela Oliver-Burgess, President, and Founder of Smile for Budgie. This opportunity allowed our youth a chance to share some of the things that matter most to them. We are so proud and grateful that they took the time to join this discussion!

Communication between parents and their Care Manager is such an important part of children being reunited with their families. Here is a testimonial of one of our Family Allies clients and her experience with her Care Manager during her journey and the successful completion of her Case Plan resulting in the reunification of her family.
