Donate to Brookwood Florida

You make it possible for the girls to receive food, shelter, and mental health counseling. Your gifts provide the girls with the care they need to thrive and break the cyclical effects of abuse. You can give in a variety of ways to promote the well-being of healthy and independent young women. Brookwood has helped hundreds of girls achieve their goals, ambitions, and dreams. You can make an impact too!
“When I came to Brookwood, I had only what I could fit in my backpack. I was “rescued” in the middle of the night and had no time to pack my things. Brookwood provided me with hygiene products, a few outfits for school, and a teddy bear to fall asleep with! This was possible because of the kindness and generosity of the community. Their donations helped me feel welcome and worthy. Thank you.” Gwen, Alumna 2013

Ways to Give

Due to the nature of Brookwood’s program, opportunities to volunteer directly with its residents are not possible. The girls are minors and have endured unimaginable abuse and neglect prior to coming to Brookwood. Their privacy is of upmost importance. However, there are several other ways you can serve Brookwood! Advocating for Brookwood and its residents is a wonderful way to get involved. The best thing we can do for Brookwood is bring awareness of the program to our friends and our community.

One-Time Payments

High quality, residential care is costly. $150 provides the cost for one girl for one day at Brookwood. Your gift of One Day could fall on her birthday, her graduation, or her first day of work.

Brookwood Florida serves approximately 130 girls every year. These girls have suffered abuse, neglect, homelessness and serious family dysfunction. Sometimes they come to Brookwood with only the clothes on their backs. Please see the attached Wish List for items that are always welcome at Brookwood.

Back-to-School DonationsNew school clothes or backpacks, calculators, notebooks, pencils, etc.

Holiday DonationsGifts of new books, clothes, winter apparel, gift cards, or other holiday-related items are always a treat to the girls at the holidays.

Gift CardsThe girls like to be rewarded for their milestones, improvements, and achievements. Awarding them with a gift card is a great way to show them that we recognize their hard work. A gift card to a clothing store, shoe store, the Tyrone Square Mall, Target, Wal-Mart, fast-food restaurants, or the movies, are terrific gestures.
