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.
