How does Goodwill’s programs and services help your community & the people in it? Well, this blog is full of examples, but here’s a favorite of ours on this Friday afternoon:
PROS is a program here at GoodwillNyNj that works to reduce hospitalization and substance abuse relapse and to help clients reconnect with family, go back to school, and find and keep a job.
Last month, the program added a new tool to getting clients on their way towards rich and meaningful lives – and that tool just happened to be a garden.
At the start, there wasn’t much going on in the space – the clients certainly had a blank canvas to start from…
But soon, with care and nurturing, the garden bloomed.
Today, full crops of sun gold tomatoes are ripe on the vine and ready for picking.
