We have BIG NEWS!

Dear Ready for Life Brevard members and supporters! 

We’ve been working on something BIG! We’re so excited to finally announce that we have selected a NEW NAME! This effort has taken several months of collaboration with our Board of Directors, Staff, community partners, and our members. We're sure you have questions so keep reading and we’ll tell you the whole story!

Why are we changing our name? 

Ready for Life in Pinellas County was the catalyst that began shaping our amazing organization. We knew our purpose and mission and found Ready for Life Pinellas as the organization model for serving the youth population we wanted to serve. They provided a great example of a framework that could get things rolling. And it absolutely did! 

Over the past two years, our team built a center in Brevard County that utilizes a wraparound youth services (WAYS) model to assist youth in their transition to sustainable independence. WAYS reflects what we do at the center every day. WAYS also reflects the expansion of our mission to include youth experiencing homelessness in addition to those transitioning out of foster care. 

Ready for Life Brevard 

is now WAYS for Life! 

WAYS stands for Wraparound Youth Services 

WAYS for Life - Wraparound Youth Services


WAYS for Life provides wraparound youth services for those formerly in foster care or experiencing homelessness. In addition to supporting the successful transition to adulthood, we promote awareness of the needs of our members in our community and beyond. 


To build a diverse, family-like community that supports, inspires, and empowers the youth we serve.

Now what?

Over the next several months, we will slowly begin to change our website, social media, email accounts, and signage. Those impacted by these changes will be notified throughout the process as we go. 

Will there be a Ribbon Cutting? YES! We will be announcing a date soon so we can celebrate this new chapter with you all! Stay tuned!

We want to give a special thanks to all those who participated in this process and to all of you for supporting Ready for Life Brevard. We are so excited to carry this on as WAYS for Life to reach new heights and we couldn’t have done it without YOUR SUPPORT and BELIEF in this Mission!

Warmest regards,

Pam Bress
