A group of Melbourne Diagnostic Medical Ssonography students spearheaded a fundraising car wash over the Fourth of July weekend for Promise in Brevard. Promise is a group that is striving to build housing  for people with special needs. In the Melbourne area, 39 acres of land has already been purchased, with the dreams of creating a housing complex for 131 residents. Plans include a hydroponic garden, stables and a riding arena for therapeutic riding, and a full size gym where they can host Special Olympic events. Future plans include building a subdivision on the property for family members of the “residents”, so they can all live in close proximity.
