Class of Housing/Services: safe, supportive shelter with food and basic essentials for adults and families experiencing homelessness

General Information:
Goodwill has provided safe, supportive shelter with food and basic essentials for adults and families experiencing homelessness throughout Northern Michigan since 1972. Ten years ago, with the support of our community, we built a new Goodwill Inn, an emergency shelter located in Traverse City, Michigan with 120 beds and 11 family rooms. The Goodwill Inn means hope for a better future. Family room occupancy is at 100%. We continue to have a waiting list for family rooms. Providing the first line of defense for people who have lost their homes and are trying to build stable, productive lives, the Goodwill Inn welcomes anyone experiencing homelessness. Pete’s Place youth wing serves youth 14-17 years of age. Experiencing Homelessness Perhaps someone is already struggling to make financial ends meet and a crisis occurs like a medical emergency, putting them over the edge. Mental health, addiction, domestic abuse and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can also be contributing factors. A majority of individuals who find themselves experiencing homelessness, only experience it once and for a short period of time. However, no one is immune to a potential life crisis and often times when life’s obstacles are too much for one person or family to bear, they turn to their community for support. Homeless?
