Get To Know Us
We fight for positive change so families can live a good life not just in times of need, but every day.
The mission of the Grandparents Raising Grandchildren of Brevard County, FL, Inc. (GRG) is to support relative caregivers throughout Brevard County in achieving Safety, Permanency, & Well-Being for their families through education, advocacy and community collaboration.
Our vision is that one day all children will live in a safe loving home with relatives that will help them to develop into their full potential. Living in a place you can call home and knowing that someone will always be there for you is something everyone needs, especially children.
Currently over 8,700 children are living in relative care families in Brevard County. Our goal is to ensure permanent placement with relatives in lieu of foster care; address special needs of children being raised by relative caregivers; advocate for relative caregivers and raise awareness of their needs.
We are a "ONE-STOP SHOP" for any relative caregiver needing help. GRG of Brevard provides cost-free, community-based programs and services.
GRG of Brevard maintains numerous monthly support groups throughout Brevard County, monthly newsletters, an annual training conference, and an information/ resource/referral warmline that serves families and professionals locally and across the state.
Currently, there are five support group meetings throughout Brevard County.
In addition to the emotional support, education and guidance that participants receive, group facilitators create opportunities for fun via social activities for the grandparents and their children. We have a team of volunteers, experienced caregivers, and staff capable of helping.
