Promise in Brevard was just a dream in 2012 for Betsy Farmer who had been talking to other parents of children with intellectual and developmental disabilities. They knew as their children became adults there were virtually no choices to live independently in the community, be gainfully employed, and have the supports needed. In November 2017, Promise in Brevard will be built and fully occupied after Betsy and her team successfully navigated the financing and development process. The intentional community will have 52 units for 126 residents. Promise is more than a place to sleep- it offers opportunities for employment in a number of entrepreneurial start ups including a catering kitchen, bakery, art studio, and a hydroponic garden and farmers market. Experience the enthusiasm Promise has generated and how a community wide effort can not only build housing that is affordable for persons with special needs, but also a chance to work, learn and play.
