Our son, Jeff, has lived at Brookwood for over 25 years, making him one of their true “old-timers.”  Needless to say, we have seen many changes during that time–all of them because of the incredible generosity of many people in giving time, money and love to this community.  The work programs at Brookwood make it possible for every resident and day student, regardless of their disability, to live a life full of achievement and a feeling of self-worth.  The residents are exposed to many rich cultural and social activities, and they have a close relationship with God.  Because of Brookwood, I don’t worry about Jeff or what will happen to him when Bill and I are no longer around.  One of the most amazing things about Brookwood is that all of this is accomplished without any government assistance.  This is an example of private enterprise at its best!  The golf benefit is the main annual fundraiser for Brookwood, and over 95% of the money raised actually benefits the community.

This picture of Jeff is of my favorites.  He is very proud to have ridden more than 1,000 miles on this bike,  When he passed the 1,000 mile mark, everyone at Brookwood was waiting in line to give him a “Sprite bath” as he crossed the line.  He said he was pretty sticky, but he loved it!

Through the Grace of God, The Brookwood Community provides an educational environment that creates meaningful jobs, builds a sense of belonging and awakens real purpose for adults with disabilities.
