Adoption

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. The adoption process makes the child a legal member of the adoptive family with all the rights and privileges of a biological child. Give a child the love and security that they truly deserve

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. If you’re looking to make a difference in your community now is the time to become a foster parent.

Foster Care Facts

Make an Impact

You can make a difference in a life of a child TODAY! Here are two ways you can make an impact: donation and volunteering. Consider joining our mission of protecting children, strengthening families and changing lives one day at a time. Brevard Family Partnership and it’s Family of Agency want the community to get involved in fostering hope for the children we serve.

Change lives now

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.

Prepare our kids for back-to-school success

Each year, Brevard Family Partnership collects back-to-school supplies to help our caregivers prepare the children they’ve welcomed into their hearts and homes for their return to the classroom.

From now until July 22, we are accepting donations of school supplies for children and youth in Brevard, Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties to help offset some of the financial stresses caregiver families experience as their kids head back to school.

You can help. Find out how.

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.
