Hello all!

I am going on on a limb here and hope this is ok to post here, but I am not sure what else to do. My brother lives in Melbourne and is literally about to become homeless. I don't have full details, but enough to know he trusted the wrong people and they took advantage of him, etc. Anyway, he is about to loose his apt and his dog, everything. He needs a JOB and quickly. He is very well versed in computers. He is in his mid 40's and has no family left, but me. He relocated there in 2018 to help take care of our terminally ill Father, who passed in 2019. I live in GA and told him to come here, but he said he couldn't/wouldn't do that to us stuff. What can I do to guide him to the right place? Places hiring, rent assistance? etc. TYIA

I’m sorry to hear that.
Unfortunately Florida seems to be Scam Capital.

There really aren’t many services here.
Florida’s motto’s always been that when things get rough, go back to where you came from.

You really need to talk him into heading up by you.

He can always come back.

Best of luck

There's very few safety nets here in FL and know for a fact. He might try and find something with a temporary agency which is a good way to work toward a permanent position if they like you after the assignment ends. With good computer skills he should have some good options. Here's a few links.

For Housing try "Housing for Homeless, Inc. in Rockledge :


Email ERA@housingforhomeless.org, and give them your contact information and type of request and amount. They will email you back with more information and an application.

For other Services :

Community Action Team at https://www.brevardfl.gov/

Catholic Charities – 321-338 -2986 – rental and utility assistance currently for City of Titusville residents (not Brevard county).

Some of these places will help out with Rent & maybe a deposit too.

Best of luck!
