In December 2022, EnCap gathered to volunteer at the Brookwood Community in West Houston. Volunteer work included moving furniture & medical supplies and packaging special orders of Christmas cookies. The furniture and medical supplies were moved out of an older building and into a newer, more updated facility which was of great assistance to Brookwood. EnCap and its partners also donated over $100,000 to the Brookwood Community to assist with their recent fundraise.
The Brookwood Community’s vision is to change the way the world thinks about adults with disabilities and to provide meaning and purpose for adults with disabilities (the “Citizens”). The Brookwood Community provides an educational environment that creates meaningful work, builds a sense of belonging, and awakens genuine purpose in the lives of adults with disabilities. The Citizens are the heart of Brookwood. Brookwood’s day program started in 1983, and the first residential Citizens joined in 1985. Today, more than 200 Citizens work in one or more of the enterprises at the main campus in Brookshire or one of the two satellite locations in Richmond, Texas and The Woodlands, Texas. Over 100 Residential Citizens live on the 485-acre campus and another 130 Day Citizens live at home and commute daily to work on campus. The Citizens enjoy genuine fellowship, participate in fitness activities, worship in the interfaith worship center, and when necessary, receive care in the onsite health clinic.
