On June 13, the New Braunfels ISD board of trustees held a public meeting regarding the donation of a property located at 511 E. North St. to the Rock Haus Foundation.

Founded in 2017, the Rock Haus Foundation was established to support and provide opportunities for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Comal County.

Rock Haus is affiliated with the Hill Country Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Center, and approximately 30 adults visit the center regularly, according to officials with the organization.

The center is housed in a former schoolhouse that was built in 1927 and offers skills training, social activities, and additional health services for individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities.

The two buildings located on the property are currently owned by NBISD, and officials with the nonprofit hope to complete necessary renovations at the site if the board approves the donation.

“What we envision is this center, this campus being there for all individuals with IDD and their family throughout the county that they can come [to] for resources; they can come for services; and they can come for education,” said Bill Berry, a member of the Rock Haus board, during the June 13 meeting.

Through the donation agreement, Rock Haus would continue to provide services in the community and plans to expand those services through additional programs, Berry said.

Should Rock Haus discontinue or suspend services to any individual, Berry said ownership of the property would revert to NBISD.

The board is expected to vote on the agreement during the upcoming July 11 meeting.
