GOODWILL FAMILY CENTER
The Goodwill Family Center Transitional Housing program helps people who are homeless get back on their feet. Basic needs including employment assistance and child care, are provided so residents can concentrate on overcoming the things that made them homeless in the first place.
The Goodwill Family Center provides services not found in other homeless shelters in the community such as on-site child care and comprehensive vocational services provided through the Goodwill WORK Solutions program. Other program components include intensive case management, shelter, food, educational programming, transportation assistance, and information and referral services.
A family that takes full advantage of the time and services available at the Goodwill Family Center will make permanent changes in their lives. Our program teaches people how to successfully manage their money and home and develop key work skills needed to keep a job. People who successfully complete our program will have the necessary skills to break the cycles of poverty, unemployment, and homelessness, thus strengthening their family for the future.
