​​​​SPACE COAST UNIT



Follow us on Facebook NASW-FL Space Coast Unit for updates!


The Space Coast Unit is enthusiastic and mobilized, having appointed its steering committee members and establishing exciting goals for the coming year. In May, our unit organized a monthly peer supervision/support group, which meets the first Sunday of each month at 6:00 pm. It has provided attendees a place to confidentially staff cases, seek guidance and perspective, and assure a high quality of care for the varied populations that we serve.

Our August meeting was attended by Cheryl McDougall, an NASW-FL endorsed candidate for Brevard County School District #2. Cheryl’s experience as a Colorado social worker offered her plan for a safer learning and working environment by placing more social workers in schools to help implement effective social emotional learning curriculums. We had the opportunity to share our concerns and hear her ideas supporting systems to address the evolving psychoeducational needs of our youth.

Get out and vote on August 28th! For more information on local candidates, go to

The Unit will be holding a networking event on October 19th; more details to come. It will be a great opportunity to meet our peers, network, and celebrate our mission in a fun, relaxing environment!
