– Get Involved –

Every person has the potential to make a difference in the life of a girl at Brookwood. Whether you donate, host an event, attend one of our fundraisers, or share our story to raise awareness about the girls in need.
There are many ways you can get involved with Brookwood Florida. Contributing to Brookwood brings awareness to its program and mission, which contributes to its success. By your involvement, we can break the cycle of abuse and build a circle of independent young women.

Advocate

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.

“I was born in Bulgaria and lived in two different orphanages before I was adopted, with my sister, by a couple from Sweden. We moved to the U.S. and life went smoothly until I was in the 8th grade. I harbored so much anger and hate toward my parents; I started skipping school, sneaking around with boyfriends, wandering down dangerous streets in the middle of the night, and telling so many lies I began to believe them myself.

I was very depressed and hospitalized 8 times. I left home when I was 18 and my mother told me to call a shelter or call Brookwood. I chose Brookwood and that call changed – and saved – my life!
I have now lived at Brookwood for 9 months in the apartment on campus – the highest privilege level at Brookwood. The counselors have helped me identify things I like about myself and learn to take responsibility for my actions. My family relationship has greatly improved- I now love myself and them, too. I work at a local hospital, and Brookwood is teaching me how to budget my earnings and save toward my independence. Instead of becoming another sad statistic I now have a bright future for myself within my family and my community. I thank Brookwood for helping me grow up, and showing me how good life can be when you work hard and stick with it. ”
