Adult Day Programs
Avondale House is a United Way agency providing day school, adult day
habilitation, and residential services for individuals with autism in Houston since 1976.
Avondale House appears to do good things–I toured the school one time, years ago, and was favorably impressed. But it’s too far from Clear Lake to be a resource for our family at this point. They offer three group homes in Southwest Houston, serving a total of 18 adults.
Brookwood is Christian residential facility for adults with disabilities. They appear to have a pretty nice art gallery, greenhouses and cafe where the residents may work or generate an income. I have not toured Brookwood yet, but it is beyond our family’s means. . . don’t see how with all the “estate planning in the world” we can possibly provide that kind of income for him to be a Brookwoodian.
I’d like to hear what others have to say about Brookwood . . . to me, their marketing seems more God-centered than client-centered, which makes me nervous (especially the empty God/Windsor chair placed throughout the community, to remind people of God’s presence. Yikes, what happens if someone sits in it?).
Here’s the info from their website:
Located in Brookshire, Texas, 40 miles west of downtown Houston, The Brookwood Community is a non-profit (501(c)3) residential facility and vocational program for adults with disabilities.
We see every individual as a unique creation of a wise and loving God, deserving not only of our abiding patience and respect, but of boundless awe. We cherish diversity in all forms and eschew narrow-minded notions of normalcy.

Hope Village is a closed residential community in Friendswood consisting of several homes located on 18 acres across from a golf course. Full-time residential services are available to all individuals whose primary diagnosis is mental retardation and who meet the admission criteria for ages six years through adulthood. Semi-private and private rooms are available and include assistance with the activities of daily living, medication administration, nutritious meals and 24-hour per day supervision and care in one of five homes on the Hope Village campus.
Residents have the opportunity to attend church and Sunday School, bowling, dances, movies, the circus, BBQs at the beach, Astro’s baseball games and various events including the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Residents may also enjoy our on-campus outdoor pool during summer months and our recreation center year-round. They have an excellent resale shop and cafe. Villagers sell soap and ceramics made in their workshops.
The Hope Village Developmental Center includes a large work training area, fully equipped kitchen,ceramics manufacturing area, computer lab,gift shop and the Village Cafe. This 14,000 square foot building is home to our Day Program which operates Monday-Friday from 8:30 to 4:00.
In addition to residential services, Hope Village offers respite care and day care. The day program is an integral part of the Hope Village Developmental Center and is a work program licensed by the U.S. Department of Labor. It is designed to develop self-confidence, healthy work ethics and provide a sense of accomplishment. Villagers receive payment on a piece rate scale for each item they complete and each Villager participating in this program is periodically assessed for skill development and mastery. Contracts for services and work to be performed by the Villagers such as packaging, collating, envelope stuffing, sorting and similar work come from businesses in the surrounding communities. We are always looking for more contracts, so if you have a project that you think we could help with, please call 281.482.1663.
Although a foundation for Hope Village is a nonprofit, Hope Village itself is private pay, about $4,000 / month, and as I recall you cannot place a family member there if there is no one who can evacuate him in event of hurricane, or provide for his basic necessities. In other words, this is not the kind of home you can hope to place your adult child into if there is no one to look after him or drop in from time to time.

Summerhouse is not in the Clear Lake area but might be accessible for those who commute into town to go to work. In addition, it might serve as a model for the creation of a similar organization in Clear Lake.
The Summerhouse conceptualized from a bi-monthly Saturday program with community outings and social activities emphasized on developing social skills and cultivating friendships among young adults with intellectual disabilities. On June 4, 2012, after countless Saturdays engaging in the community, The Summerhouse doors were opened full time by a small group of 4 volunteers and 6 clients with a very basic idea in mind: young adults with intellectual disabilities are deserving of highest quality programming available to enable them to become valued, respected, contributing members of society.
From the beginning, The Summerhouse has focused on providing young adults with a variety of options to obtain the skills necessary for a successful transition into independent adult life. The program’s beginnings as a social skills based program has naturally evolved into a full time daily educational program encompassing not only basic life skills, but functional academics, social and emotional skills, and vocational training focused on entry into community-based employment.
Today, young adults (post-high school) cam participate in daily programming focused on life, learning, and exploring with a small group of peers led by our professional staff. The Summerhouse philosophy is not only to equip each person with individualized skills that enable them to become productive citizens, but to do so in the midst of a conventional neighborhood setting. In this way, they are integrated into the daily life of the community.
The core program runs from 9am-3pm, with supervised activities from 7am-5pm each day.
Members attend Monday through Friday year round.
