Founded in 1927, Brookwood Florida provides a unique, life-changing residential program for non-pregnant, non-addicted, at-risk girls between the ages of 13 and 21. The agency typically serves between 100 and 110 girls per year who have suffered abuse, neglect, homelessness and serious family dysfunction. Along with a safe and nurturing environment, Brookwood provides a four-part program that includes education, job skills training, independent living preparation, and mental health counseling. The agency also offers three residential tiers with increasingly more independent living conditions to help our clients move steadily toward self-sufficiency and reintegration within the community.
