We are thrilled to announce that Better Together is growing to serve families and children on the Space Coast of Florida!

Community partners are critical to our mission, and local distributor Carroll Distributing Co. stepped up to pledge $3 million to further our reach in the Space Coast region over the next three years.

“We are beyond grateful for the faith and confidence Carroll Distributing Co. has in Better Together and our mission. Having the opportunity to expand into the Space Coast is all thanks to our wonderful group of business and church partners, and the community as a whole,” said Megan Rose, CEO of Better Together. “This pledge will help us strengthen relationships and change the lives of families in the community for years to come.”

Our team is ready to begin serving families this month in the Central East Florida area, which spans the Space and Treasure 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 feel so incredibly privileged to collaborate with Better Together in backing such a commendable cause here in our county,” said Justin Saenz, vice president of sales for Carroll Distributing. “Their team is second to none, and Carroll Distributing holds firm belief in both the quality of their efforts and the positive influence they will bring to Brevard.”

Local leaders and community supporters joined us on Aug. 17 in Melbourne for our launch celebration. The evening featured special activities and a ribbon cutting ceremony while providing the community an opportunity to learn more about the organization and how to get involved.

If you’re in the Space Coast area, we’re here to help.
