About

Promise is a not-for-profit organization crated to provide a safe, loving environment for adults with special needs to live and work. Promise is currently building affordable housing that will accommodate approximately 126 special needs individuals. In addition, as a way to encourage families of young adults with special needs to not have to rely entirely on the state/federal government for funding, Promise in Brevard has developed 10 social enterprise concepts, in which Promise residents, also known as "Promisers," can work to pay for their own support services and to buy the things they want, just like everyone else. The goal is for all Promise residents to either be employed at one of our 10 social enterprises or elsewhere in the community. Our focus is not on the disabilities of these individuals, but rather the abilities, and the instrumental role they play in our society.

We are looking for Volunteers to help us as we grow. It is such an exciting time for us right now! We have 3 new enterprises that are getting ready to open (Promise Café/Bakery and Gift Shop; Hydroponic Garden; and, Promise Main Campus Apartment Complex). Like with our Thrift Store Promise Treasures, our volunteers are the backbone of our success. We depend on the support of our community and we value and appreciate each and every one of our Community Volunteers. Please help us to continue to make a difference. Your support is so very significant!
