BROOKSHIRE, WALLER COUNTY - The Brookwood special needs center is embarking on a $30 million fundraiser to finance a new 41,000-sf Education and Enterprise Building.

The capital campaign will be Brookwood’s largest ever, and the new complex is projected to double the amount of job opportunities for special needs adults, according to Joe Mazzu, director of development.

“The need is enormous. More and more kids are aging out of special education programs, and they need something for life,” Mazzu said. “We are gladly accepting any donations towards the project.”

Demand for accommodations like Brookwood is nothing new. The 485-acre community in Brookshire has been serving disabled individuals since its inception in 1985.

Other initiatives Brookwood hopes to accomplish with the campaign include an addition of two more group homes; a renovation of the existing handcrafts building, which will expand therapy and activities programs; and infrastructure improvements to maximize accessibility and safety.
