Coastal Connection

Produced by WFIT's General Manager, Terri Wright, Coastal Connection serves as your spotlight on the community. Each 5- min edition of Coastal Connection showcases a special event and/or not-for-profit organization in Brevard County, Florida.

Our dream is to come together as a community to support children with Autism and related disabilities; help us make it reality.  Our mission is to use education, sports and the arts as avenues to enrich the lives of and bridge the gap between children with Autism Spectrum Disorders, related disabilities, their families and the community in which we live.

Built in 1896, the former home of inventor William T. Wells has sat sentinel on the the banks of the Indian River since the days of horse and carriage, watching Melbourne and Brevard County grow into the world class Gateway to Space that we know today.

We here at Green Gables understand that our goal may seem overly ambitious at first, but if only 8,000 of our neighbors (in a county of just over half a MILLION) gave just $100 dollars, Green Gables would be saved for generations to come.
