Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Building and Restoring Hope, Inc. ("BRH") was established as a nonprofit organization in 2006 with the vision to provide services that would have a positive impact on the disenfranchised. At that time, we were purely a volunteer organization. In 2010 we saw the need of people and their families who care for a disabled person. It was at this time we launched the special needs day care. The organization currently serves as a supervised adult care facility for special needs & disabled adults 17 and older who require 24-hour care. We are licensed by Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services.
What is SPECIAL NEEDS daycare?
Imagine this: You have an adult that is non-mobile, disabled or cannot be left without a caregiver. Your ability to work, your ability to meet the needs of the disabled person or even have a simple lunch would be next to impossible without a program that you could trust to care for the loved ones from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm with extensive care including medical, intellectual and social needs being met each day.
Who are typical clients?
Our clients are 100% disabled and without this program they would most likely be in state schools, nursing homes or homeless. Our population includes veterans with PTSD, individuals with mental illnesses, memory loss/dementia, and physical illnesses such as spinal bifida, cell deletions and amputees.
Majority of clients are from the lowest socio-economic backgrounds and either live independently in isolation, a group home environment or with a family member. Overall, adult day/special needs services provide therapeutic support, restore balance in times of crisis, and enhance overall quality of life for the clients.
