The Goodwill Development Association receives $3,000 from Seattle offices

Greetings from the Windermere Foundation,

The Goodwill Development Association received $3,000 from five Seattle Windermere offices (Eastlake, Madison Park, Magnolia, Queen Anne & Wall Street).

The Goodwill Development Association’s mission is to help eliminate homelessness in the Greater Seattle area by providing transitional housing for low-income and at-risk teen mothers and their children. They also aim to help families obtain permanent housing, increase skills and income, and gain greater self-determination.

“Through our programs, we have seen many lives changed for the better. After completing necessary requirements at the Goodwill Development Association, they will be able to take full responsibility for themselves and their children. Since 1990, 227 teen mothers have successfully completed the program.” The Goodwill Development Association

The Windermere Foundation grant will be used to provide supportive services such as education, case management, life skills training and self-esteem workshops.
