A God-centered educational, residential, and entrepreneurial community for adults with disabilities
Through the Grace of God, The Brookwood Community provides an educational environment that creates meaningful jobs, builds a sense of belonging, and demands dignity and respect for adults with disabilities.
Our campus consists of: Eight group homes, two single-family staff homes, a residential Inn, health and dental clinic, Worship Center, enterprise building, activities and administration building, 47 greenhouses, Gift and Garden Center and the Café at Brookwood, and several other support buildings.
Our programs serve: 110 resident adults (known as Brookwood “citizens”) who are functionally disabled and live at Brookwood 24/7. Another 80 plus adults participate in our day program. The range of diverse needs we help include people with autism spectrum disorders; intellectual disabilities; developmental disabilities, traumatic brain injury; dual diagnosis; and/or aging care needs. We also serve as a resource for families. Brookwood’s outreach program actively shares our innovative concepts and techniques with other professional caregivers across our nation and around the world.
Our purpose is: To provide opportunity through education so that Brookwood citizens will:
- Acquire meaningful job skills and hold real jobs in the Community’s own business enterprises
- Experience the pride that accompanies the ability to contribute to one’s own support
- Grow socially, emotionally, and spiritually
