Social Enterprises

Promise has developed a variety of social enterprise concepts, designed to employ our residents and provide the opportunity for them to help pay for their own independent living needs. Our focus is on the abilities, rather than the disabilities, of our residents and the instrumental roles these individuals play in our society. Once established, these enterprises will help generate funds for Promise, which will, in turn, allow the organization to be self-sustaining.

Promise Social Enterprises

Bringing a vision to life:
Promise of Brevard
Our first social enterprise, which opened in October 2013, is our Promise Treasures Thrift Shoppe, located at 3040 W. New Haven Ave., in the center of West Melbourne. We currently have 10 Promisers on our payroll at Treasures and provide vocational training for another 30 young adults with special needs and operate with the help of more than 40 community volunteers. We offer a variety of boutique and furniture items, home décor, holiday items, handmade soy candles, all-natural doggie treats and free freshly baked cookies for our customers. We accept donations of gently used items, as well pick-up for furniture or large donations. The schedule a pick-up, please call (321) 536-4344.
Promise in Brevard
We broke ground on our second social enterprise, the Promise Café & Bakery, in September 2016 and plan to complete construction in 2019. Located in West Melbourne Community Park and next to the Space Coast Field of Dreams, the Promise Café & Bakery offers a universal design and will be so much more than an eatery. We plan to employ several Promisers at opening and more will be added as we grow. This enterprise will feature a café/bakery, where our Promisers will deliver the food to our customers, a Wi-Fi Bar overlooking the city of West Melbourne’s Skate Park and amphitheater, a 40-seat private dining room, a gift shoppe, a handicapped-accessible walk-up to-go window and ice-cream corner and outdoor pavilions, overlooking the city of West Melbourne’s Splash Pad. We were blessed with a $500,000 matching gift to complete this project, and every donation made toward our Promise Café & Bakery will be matched dollar-for-dollar.

The Promise Creative Arts Center was designed to foster a sense of creativity for our residents with special needs, as well as for the entire community. One of Promise’s planned social enterprises, our Arts Center features a vibrant public art gallery, large studio and outdoor patio. It can be rented out for events and private public classes and we welcome artists from throughout the area who would like to host their own art classes and workshops. For contact us, call (321) 722-7400, Ext. 131 or email promisecreativeartscenter@gmail.com.
