Mutual Aid Brevard is an informal network of Space Coast residents who help one another through personal and family struggles by sharing information and resources. “Share what you have. Ask for what you need. We’re all in this together.”

Community leader Stacey Patel created the group in response to the dire needs of people and families during the early days of the Covid 19 pandemic, the group now has over 17,000 members.

Group members and a team of volunteer administrators help Space Coast residents identify and access community resources, address gaps in our county’s social services infrastructure by offering direct assistance, neighbor to neighbor. Members often seek and offer aid to and from one another, from groceries to clothes to temporary shelter, to gas, to utility assistance and more.

Please join us on November 3rd. We will have a great panel of Mutual Aid Volunteers and aid recipients who will share their real-life examples of the struggles people face, how they have interacted not only with Mutual Aid but other local aid organizations and share ways you can get involved.

Mutual Aid panelists will include volunteers:
Leslie Mitchell
Barbara Willett
Stacey Patel
Anna Dahl
Tyler Dahl
and 2 or 3 aid recipients
