Grandparents Raising Grandchildren
of Brevard County, Florida, Inc.

Are you raising your grandchild or grandchildren?

Then this is a new chapter in your life, and there are many others through out the United States sharing your experience. This chapter will challenge you and change your life.

Within Brevard County there are approximately 103,897 children. The Department of Children and Families, through foster families and other county facilities, take care of 500-1300 of these children while grandparents are raising 6,324 and relatives 1,434 (totaling 7,758) of Brevard's children. Over 13% of Brevard County's children are being raised by someone other than their parents.

Identifying financial, social, health and legal resources can be confusing, time consuming and difficult. Within Brevard County, we have created our organization to help you locate resources you need and understand your options.

Our primarys goals include support, resources and advocacy.
For us it is summed up in our organization's motto:
The Child First.

We are building an new online resource for grandparents that are raising their grandchildren, to provide the resources needed to meet this new challenge. Please be patient while contstruction is under way.
