BFP E-NEWS
January 2016
A new year promotes an opportunity to reflect on the impact that we as a community have made in the lives of the children and families we have serve. In 2015, one of our goals was to ensure we leave a legacy and continue to invest in Brevard's children and families to support and strengthen the vulnerable and those in need of tangible support. In 2015 we celebrated the "Decade of Difference" our community has made by establishing Brevard's first child welfare endowment. I am pleased to inform you that as a result of your support we were able to raise over $100,000 dollars to meet this goal.

As we look ahead to 2016 and prepare for the future, we continue to strategize ways we can make a collective and meaningful impact to improve the quality of life of those we serve and those in need of support.

Happy New Year from Brevard Family Partnership!
Wishing You a Happy New Year filled with prosperity and success!
January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month
According to the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN), human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery from which traffickers profit from the control and exploitation of others.

Those vulnerable to human trafficking span multiple areas, such as age, socio-economic status, nationality, education-level, and gender. Traffickers often prey on people hoping for a better life, lacking employment opportunities, having an unstable home life, or with a history of sexual abuse-conditions present in all spheres of society.

In support of Human Trafficking Awareness Month, NCTSN has resources for mental health professionals, law enforcement personnel, health care professionals, and survivors on the signs of trafficking and services for human trafficking survivors.
Make a Difference in a Child's Life
Brevard Family Partnership is looking to grow our foster parent team. Foster families are some of the most extraordinary people in our community-your friends and neighbors who open their hearts and homes to the many children every year who suffer abuse or neglect.
 
  Join them and give a child a safe play to stay. Take an active role in their life and contribute to their health and well-being each day with guidance and support.
