Funding through the State Farm Neighborhood Assist will prevent at least thirty families from experiencing homelessness.
“We are truly humbled to have been selected as a finalist out of thousands of entries nationwide! It really validates our work on the front line during the pandemic. We’re so thankful to State Farm for donating $1 million dollars to support causes across the country, and for creating the mechanism to give Brevard County neighbors a very tangible way to help our neighbors right now!” said Tara Pagliarini, Executive Director of Family Promise of Brevard.
