Building, Teaching, Transforming – A Goodwill Central Texas Update
The year is going by quickly, and we have lots of news to share! Let’s start with a success story, where one young lady shows us that anything is possible!
Six years ago, at age 15, Kaitlen became pregnant and ended up dropping out of high school. Today, she’s setting a strong example for her son by providing a stable home, earning her high school diploma, and working at the full-time job of her dreams. Check out her amazing turnaround story!
