Alumnus are the Backbone of Brentwood. They give hope and inspiration to those on program.

Our Brentwood Alumni

Brentwood Alumni are people whom have graduated the Brentwood Program and continue to come back for their Aftercare. Part of their Aftercare is giving back what they were once received. Our Alumni are encouraged not just to come back to meetings or counselling, but to give back to the New Person first coming into Brentwood. Following that person from their first day on program up until their Graduation.

Alumni Volunteering

Many alumnus volunteer and help in whatever way they are able to. Some examples are giving rides to appointments, working men or women’s duty, visiting people, helping with the Brentwood Lottery, etc.
