Veterans & their Families Program
VETERANS & THEIR FAMILIES PROGRAM
Goodwill is one of the first organizations to respond to the multitude of challenges faced by veterans, their families, and the families of those who serve on active duty.
This initiative focuses on providing services to accommodate returning veterans facing heightened risks of unemployment, personal problems, and homelessness. We are developing alliances with community partners to maximize resources and avoid duplication of services in order to help transition our veterans into employment aligned with their vocational goals. The American Veterans and Their Families Program helps eliminate barriers to employment and will provide opportunities for higher paying positions for veterans and their families.

Yoga for Veterans
Garden of the Heart Yoga Center of Sarasota teaches our Warriors at Ease, a specialty yoga class for veterans -- Thursdays from 3:30 to 4:30pm in the Community Room of the Goodwill Mecca Street location. Participating veterans say the program has been extraordinary and after becoming inundated with requests for the pilot program to continue, we are thrilled to announce that this program has been added as a continuing component of our Veteran's Program.
