Now Serving Treasure Coast Families

Better Together is expanding! We are ready to begin serving families on the Treasure Coast of Florida, strengthening families across Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee counties.

Focused on helping parents who are going through a challenging time to keep their kids out of foster care, find work and address the root causes of their struggle, our team works to reunite as a family with the tools and support system to thrive. Our programming has rapidly expanded to reach families in 21 counties across the state and has served over 5,900 children and kept 98% of families together, while helping nearly 39,000 job seekers across 22 states find employment.

To support the growth of our programs into the Treasure Coast region, local distributor Southern Eagle Distributing has generously donated $400,000 to Better Together!

“The opportunity to bring Better Together’s programs into the Treasure Coast is made possible through the support of community, business and church partnerships, and we are so grateful for Southern Eagle Distributing’s generosity and belief in our mission,” said Megan Rose, CEO of Better Together. “These dollars will help us change lives in this region as we come alongside parents to provide a network of support and resources that aim to strengthen families and communities.”

Our latest launch is part of our new Central East Florida region, which spans the Treasure and Space Coasts, specifically those in Brevard, Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee counties. In any given month, based on state data from the past year, these counties have more than 1,200 children in out-of-home care, a designation that largely includes foster care and group homes.

“We are deeply inspired by Better Together’s mission to strengthen families, and we are proud to pledge our continued support to help bring these valuable programs to our community,” said Philip A. Busch, president of Southern Eagle Distributing. “Better Together has a real, relational approach to meeting the needs of local families, and we look forward to seeing the impactful work their team carries out within the Treasure Coast region.”

Special thanks to all who joined us for our Treasure Coast celebration event, held Aug. 23 at Southern Eagle’s location in Fort Pierce. The event brought together local leaders and community supporters for celebratory activities and a ribbon cutting ceremony, providing a chance for the community to learn more about the organization and how to get involved.

Treasure Coast families, we’re here to help.
