About Friends

Friends of Children of Brevard County, Inc. is a long standing 501(c)(3) that financially assists local abused children in Brevard County, FL. Friends supports children who have been removed from their home due to unsafe conditions resulting from abuse, abandonment and neglect. Brevard County has approximately 1,000 of these vulnerable children. Many of these children have very few personal possessions and are placed with a relative, family friend, or neighbor. These caregivers may not have the financial means to sufficiently provide for these children in a manner that provides normalcy.Those that are not placed with someone they know are placed in foster care or a group home where there is even less normalcy. When these vulnerable and traumatized children have unmet needs Friends steps in. Friends is there to fill in the gaps, often recognizing the need for urgency over bureaucratic process.
