Make A Difference

There are several ways you can make a difference in your community for those in need. Devereux Community Based Care is devoted to helping children and families reach their goals but we can’t do it alone. With your help and support, we can make a difference in their lives, today and in the many years to come. 

Planned Giving

Become a Foster Parent

Foster parents play an essential role in providing a temporary, safe and nurturing home to children when their parents are unable to care for them. We are currently looking for foster families in Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee counties to provide a caring home for those in need. Please consider becoming a foster parent today.

Donate Online

Monetary Donations

Anyone can give to the organization through monetary donations, which assist Devereux Community Based Care in providing additional support and resources to those in your community. Whether it is a $1 or $1,000 every penny impacts the lives of those in need. Some of our needs includes laptop computers for high-school seniors heading to college, apartment kits for young people moving into their first homes or dorms, college application fees and campus visit expenses, and scholarships to fast-track teens who need additional help getting their GEDs. We also accept donations designed for specific purpose.

Making a donation online is quick, secure and simple. You can make a onetime gift or setup reoccurring gifts.

We ensure all donations are properly recorded and used according to your wishes. At the end of the year, we will provide you with a letter of charitable giving that lists all the donations you’ve made to us in the past 12 months.

Advocacy is just one more way you can make a difference for children and adolescents facing abuse and neglect. Inspire your elected officials, speak out and be heard. Write your local representative about the growing need or to tell your story.

Community Events


Like most non-profits, Devereux CBC relies heavily on volunteers to assist with a variety of projects. Volunteer opportunities include administrative duties, such as filing and data entry, helping to maintain donations, serving on various boards and committees and event assistance. Opportunities vary throughout the year, but we are always in need of volunteer groups who can coordinate community drives for things like toiletries, overnight bags, new socks and underwear and school supplies. We also work with volunteer fundraisers interested in pulling together benefits on behalf of our children and families.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer with Devereux CBC, please download a volunteer application from this page. Once you’ve completed the application, scan and return it to Our volunteer coordinator will contact you to arrange an interview, either by phone or over a nice cup of coffee.
