In a community brimming with important work by diverse groups, these folks make a stellar addition to life on the Space Coast.
The countless contributions of local nonprofits don’t go unnoticed by officials at 211 Brevard, who on Friday named the winners and finalists for 211’s 2021 Parrish Medical Center Stars of Space Coast Awards.
Eckerd Connects Family Support Services was awarded the Florida Power & Light Community Star Award for homelessness prevention.
“Again this year, we are focusing on honoring nonprofit partners with services that complement our own key services and programs,” said Libby Donoghue, executive director for 211 Brevard.
“We could not be effective in improving lives on the Space Coast without our partners who join us in providing services,” Donoghue said.
