Spouses find new skills, jobs
James and Bertha walked in the door of Goodwill-Easter Seals Minnesota seeking long-term stability in their lives. Their pasts were filled with criminal records, addiction, mental health issues, drugs and short-term thinking. But those rocky roads led them to each other, and to us. That's how our Employment Training & Education program welcomed the first-ever husband and wife team attending classes simultaneously.
On the road to health, employment and success
Patti had a rocky road to travel to get to where she is today. From a divorce, to homelessness, to an arrest, to addiction, to living on SSDI, she learned through our Work Incentives Connection that health and work with a disability was possible.
A second chance at a first impression
Ever wish you had a second chance to make a first impression? One of our new partners is making that wish a reality for one of our ReEntry participants. Karis Heffron, owner of Beloved Laser Tattoo Removal, is donating a generous gift of that second chance.
If you know an adult who needs help finishing his or her high school equivalency, look no further than Goodwill-Easter Seals. Stop into our services and programs office at 2700 E. Lake St. in Minneapolis on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays, 10 a.m. 4 p.m.
Construction projects build more than homes
Goodwill/Easter Seals construction training course participants broke ground on a new home in St. Paul as a part of an innovative partnership with the City and Urban Homeworks. Learn more about how this program is a win both for people who need affordable housing and people needing work experience.
