In 1994, Mary Ann Sterling saw what was broken and knew that she could really make a difference when she started Grandparents Raising Grandchildren of Brevard; focusing on advocacy for relative caregivers and their families. Determined that she was the "somebody" that was needed to help create a solution to this challenge she set out on an ambitious goal of bridging the gap between the more than 8,500 children living in relative care families and the non-profits dedicated to helping children and families.

Creating a one-stop-shop to aid Brevard County's relative families in accessing state and local services. Our primary goal is to strengthen families by offering classes and programs to educate, nurture and empower relative caregivers and their children to enhance their quality of life. Supporting families in crisis to develop long-term solutions and realistic strategies to permanently break the cycle of abuse, neglect and destructive behavior, caused by dysfunctional homes.


Our Mission is to provide advocacy, support, and referral to relative care families throughout Brevard County. Our vision is that one day all children will live in a safe loving home with relatives that will help them to develop into their full potential. Living in a place you can call home and knowing that someone will always be there for you is something everyone needs, especially children.
