One of the largest contributors of long-term homelessness is the lack of proper education. Many homeless individuals have never graduated high school and most have never completed any higher education or skill trade training. There are very few employers who will hire someone without education, and when trying to get back on your feet this can be crippling, and even more so for parents with children.
We understand that if someone is truly going to have lasting stability, they need proper education tools. One of the many services we provide is the opportunity to go to class and receive free HSE (GED) preparation, and when ready Good News will pay for the testing! If the high school diploma has already been achieved, we will work with each individual and help them be placed into skill trade training or college. Most homeless and poor can receive plenty of grant money to make this dream a reality. Imagine, having free housing, free food prepared for you and a bed to call your own so that you can finally focus on a much needed education.
