The Brookwood Community


The Brookwood Community

Through the Grace of God, The Brookwood Community is a nonprofit organization that provides an educational environment that creates meaningful jobs, builds a sense of belonging, and demands dignity and respect for adults with disabilities. Brookwood founder, Yvonne Streit, describes the program as “Pragmatic therapy, in tandem with life.”

We created this 45 minute documentary-style informational video series to help audiences get a sense of what Brookwood is, how it works, and how it has changed the lives of people all over the world.  An informational DVD was produced to distribute to visitors and supporters.

The Brookwood 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.

Brookwood’s programs serve over 100 resident adults (known as “Brookwoodians”) 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.
