Goodwill and SAFE: Working Together for Survivors

When Sarah* walked into the SAFE shelter almost nine months ago, she was fleeing for her life. Now she is much more stable, has a full time job, and is at last feeling independent now that she’s away from the violence that plagued her past.

At SAFE (Stop Abuse For Everyone, a merger of Austin Children’s Shelter and SafePlace), Goodwill Central Texas has an embedded Career Case Manager onsite to provide job search assistance and employment support. Read about Sarah’s success and our 8-year community partnership with SAFE.
