For Goodness Sake Expands Reach with New Partner Agencies
Plainville, CT, October 22, 2018– For Goodness Sake, a local 501c3 nonprofit that provides donated furniture and household goods to individuals and families transitioning to independent living, announced today that it will be partnering with two new agencies, offering services to help their clients furnish their new homes.
My Sisters' Place is a HUD-funded housing program that works with clients transitioning out of homelessness. Based in Hartford and founded in 1982 initially as a shelter for women with infants, My Sisters’ Place has today grown to include three permanent sites.
EdAdvance Head Start is a Prenatal to Five program. They work with children and their families coming out of crisis and moving into a safe environment--making a home so children and families can root and grow.
For Goodness Sake accepts referrals from nearly 40 local agencies, helping people in Central Connecticut who are making the transition to independent living and are in need due to certain life situations.
For Goodness Sake provides direct aid, such as furniture and household goods, making an empty space into a home. The organization accepts gently used furniture and household goods from the community and distributes them to people in need, serving families and individuals in Bristol, Burlington, Farmington, Harwinton, New Britain, Plainville, Plantsville, Plymouth, Southington, West Hartford, and Wolcott. Clients must be referred from a partner agency. To learn more about how to donate or volunteer at For Goodness Sake, visit their website at www.forgoodnessake.org.
