About us

Ready for Life Brevard is now doing business as WAYS for Life™! Ready for Life in Pinellas County was the catalyst that began shaping our amazing organization. We knew our purpose and mission and found Ready for Life Pinellas as the organization model for serving the youth population we wanted to serve. 

Over the past two years, our team created a center in Brevard County that utilizes the National Center for Innovation and Excellence model for wraparound youth services to assist youth in their transition to sustainable independence. 

Wraparound Youth Services (WAYS) reflects what we do at the center every day. WAYS also reflects the expansion of our mission to include youth experiencing homelessness in addition to those transitioning out of foster care. 

Our Mission
WAYS for Life provides wraparound youth services for young adults formerly in foster care and those experiencing homelessness. In addition to supporting the successful transition to adulthood, we promote awareness of the needs of our members in our community and beyond. 

Our Vision 
We are a diverse, family-like community that supports, inspires, and empowers the young adults we serve.

WAYS for Life™ is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that created a drop-in center for at-risk youth ages 15-25 in Brevard County, Florida. The center provides Wraparound Youth Services (WAYS) to help teens and young adults avoid homelessness and crime by removing barriers to their success utilizing lifeline support networks.
