About Promise In Brevard
Promise in Brevard is a nonprofit organization, dedicated to improving the lives of young adults with special needs. Promise was created after co-founders, Betsy and Luke Farmer, had a vision for a housing campus for young adults with special needs. After a long – and sometimes challenging – journey, the Promise campus is now a reality!
With a sense of independence long yearned for, Promise is home to 126 young adults with special needs who have an all-inclusive, safe and fun place to live, among neighbors who care. Promise also features vocational training and employment opportunities with on-site training and continuing education, as well as a fulfilling life enrichment program.
While it will provide housing for individuals with varying abilities, the Promise concept features so much more than just a place to live. The Promise vision includes 10 planned business-social enterprises that provide employment opportunities for Promise residents.
The idea is to have all Promise residents working either out in the community or at one of these 10 social enterprises. The ability to earn a paycheck and become contributing members of society is a feeling and an achievement that cannot be overstated. We have been blessed with amazing community support over the years and look forward to continuing this unique and beneficial concept for years to come with your support! "We Promise" to make the dreams come true for residents.
