Social Services Department

The Salvation Army offers a variety of tangible support to individuals and families in need in central and north Brevard.  Below is a brief description of services available and how to get help.  Please call (321) 632-6060 for assistance.

Emergency Financial Assistance

  • Rent/Mortgage Assistance – help with payments to prevent eviction/foreclosure.
  • Utility Assistance (electricity, water, and/or natural gas) – help with payments to prevent shut-off of services.
  • By Appointment only. Call (321) 632-6060 ext. 13. Available Tuesday-Fridays from 9am-noon, and 1pm-4pm in Cocoa.

Food Pantry

  • Canned goods, other non-perishables and perishable food.

  • Donations are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis beginning at 1pm Tuesdays-Fridays in Cocoa.

Many of the organization’s food banks anticipate an increase in need if the standoff continues.

Nearly four weeks into what’s become the longest government shutdown in U.S. history, many across the country are beginning to feel the financial impact of the impasse.

Many of the more than 800,000 federal workers and roughly 4 million more government contractors affected have now missed their first paycheck. For some of them, this may mean they need to reign in their spending on non-essentials, or simply tighten their monthly budget. But for others living paycheck to paycheck, missing just one could mean they can’t pay their mortgage, or afford groceries, medicine, or child care.

The Salvation Army is one of several groups stepping up to offer some relief to furloughed government employees, those working without pay, or anyone else affected, as they navigate the unexpected stress and financial hardship triggered by the partial shutdown.
