Promise in Brevard

Secure Future for Disabled Adults
in West Melbourne

The paramount concern that parents with disabled children often grapple with is, “What will become of my child when I am no longer able to provide care?” For many such parents, Promise, Inc. in West Melbourne, Florida, serves as a beacon of hope.

Since its foundation in 2009, Promise, Inc. has grown as a compassionate and committed 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. We are dedicated to providing affordable, supportive housing for adults with cognitive and physical disabilities, striving to provide a place for them to not only live but thrive

Through a carefully cultivated network of public and private partnerships, we’ve created a community model that is as unique as our residents. It’s not just about housing; it’s about fostering independence, celebrating individuality and nurturing potential. 

Our flagship project, the Promise in Brevard affordable housing community, which opened its doors in 2014. It’s enriched by our comprehensive Resident Community Program, which offers a range of services and programs thoughtfully designed to promote a fulfilling, independent life for all residents. 

Located at 4105 Norfolk Parkway, West Melbourne, on 39 acres, adjacent to the Hammock Landing Shopping Plaza, Promise is home to 125 adults with disabilities, ranging in age from 19 to 60; although, the average age of our residents is 32. Rent at this affordable housing community is calculated on a sliding scale based on the resident’s total income. This helps us ensure that our community is accessible to those who need it most.

The Promise Resident Community Program: Empowering Adults with Disabilities

Our Resident Community Program encompasses everything from vocational training to health and fitness classes. We offer more than 60 activities per week, ensuring our residents have ample opportunities for personal development.

A distinguishing feature of Promise’s approach is our commitment to employment for disabled adults. Our mission is to enable every Promise resident who wishes to work, to have that chance. As a testament to our commitment, nearly 60 of our residents currently hold jobs at 30 different local businesses, including Promise’s own social enterprises.

Promise in Brevard has opened doors of opportunity for our daughter that we never thought possible. We are now watching Rachel’s dreams unfold – dreams we once thought life had stolen from her; the adventure of independent living in a community of neighbors who have become friends, family.

As a relative newcomer to Promise, I can't begin to realize the possibilities this place will bring to our loved ones. I always thought my daughter would be with me. Now, her journey is about to begin. Living independently has been her dream and her dream is coming true. Thank you so much for all you have done. I will be forever grateful.

Promise has given Michael the ability to be independent. If he was still at home, he would be at the mercy of us, full-time working parents, to be around to drive him where he needs to go, we often felt guilty and he was often bored. At Promise, he has friends to hang out with and activities he can attend and a plethora of other services that aid him in his independence. My husband and I are thrilled to have a place that allows Michael this life. It also gives us peace of mind in the event that something should happen to us.
