Nonprofit seeks to train foster families

These children need YOU! Classes to begin Sept. 26 and Oct. 6

BREVARD COUNTY — Some children are just dealt a rough lot in life and are left waiting for their parents or guardians to get better before they come home again.

Luckily, there are some people in Brevard County who truly care for the wellbeing of these families and are working to make a difference that results in reunification.

Brevard Family Partnership is a nonprofit organization committed to protecting children and strengthening families. However, these people can’t do it alone and are looking for the support of the community to step up by becoming licensed foster parents.

To help spread awareness, BFP has launched a “Unique Foster Opportunity” campaign.

“When I started five years ago, we were at 500,000 in population,” said Phil Scarpelli, president of BFP. “You know, we’re over 625,000 now. In the next three to five years, we could top a million. It’s great for economic growth and development but with the percentage of the population there will be kids needing us. We’re ready for that charge.”
