Mission: The South Brevard Sharing Center Inc. (SBSC) was founded in 1971 as a non-profit, community based agency whose mission is to support, strengthen and empower families to achieve self-sufficiency in south Brevard County, FL. The South Brevard Sharing Center serves as a centralized and coordinated access point for services for Melbourne, FL area residents that are in poverty struggling to meet basic needs, at risk of homelessness, or experiencing homelessness.
Results: Between January 2016 and December 2017, the Street to Home team has successfully helped over 120 adults and 25 children out of situations of chronic homelessness with ongoing housing support. Our Street to Home coordinated entry team assists approximately 60 unique households monthly with resource connections to programs for long-term support or connections and assistance to be able to resolve their situation on their own through light-touch assistance or their natural support system. Our Basic Needs program sees over 4000 unique households annually for food, hygiene and health items, and other necessities.
My family has been supporters of SBSC since 2012, and we are proud to know that every dollar that we donate is used to support our local community in an impactful way! I have enjoyed seeing SBSC adjust to meet the needs of the community to address everything from providing basic needs such as food, clothing, and health-related items to preventing and ending homelessness! Keep up the great work!
