Goodwill’s Good Hand Up program specifically targets clients experiencing homelessness. We have employment specialists working in the field to bring services to these clients. We are in the process of creating partnerships with and scheduling to bring employment services to clients in Rapid ReHousing (HPRP), Texas ReEntry Services, and the YWCA. In addition, we have learned that not all clients experiencing homelessness are work-ready. Our plan is to secure funding to put clients that need personal and social adjustment skills training into our DARS-certified Work Adjustment Training program for 3-6 months. The goal of this training is to get clients job ready so that they can be placed in meaningful jobs upon program completion. For more information, please call 817-332-7866 and ask for a representative from Good Hand Up.
