Homeless Person’s Memorial Day

National Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day takes place each year on the first day of winter and the longest night of the year, December 21st. This day serves to raise awareness of those who don’t have a place to call home, and to remember those who have died as a result of being homeless.

Every day of the year, Goodwill Fort Worth strives to provide those facing homeless and unemployment a “hand up, not a hand out” through the Goodwill Works program. The program is designed to build real solutions to homelessness by addressing the many issues that prevent attachment to sustaining employment. Goodwill Works provides comprehensive and person-centered assessment, job readiness training, and employment services to each participant, through five Job Resource Center locations and two mobile crews that serve the clients at local shelters, unsheltered people, and those re-entering society through transitional centers, in Tarrant, Parker, and Denton counties.

For more information or for assistance, please call 817-332-7866 and ask for a representative from Goodwill Works.
