In March 2016, Goodwill’s northern team launched a new program that offers Employability and Life Skills workshops to those in the Mecosta County Jail in Big Rapids. After just 3 months, it has already been a great success! The program has served over 75 individuals and received the following feedback from its participants.
“I attend the Lifeskills program….it has been extremely helpful for me and I have learned some things I didn’t know. Excellent things I think I can use on the outside.”
“I’m writing you because I’m serious about changing my life and the only way for me to do so is by obtaining legal employment.”
Lives and communities are being changed!
