Goodwill Manasota recently received a grant of $60,000 from the Ralph S. French Charitable Foundation in support of the award-winning GoodPartner Coach program. The GoodPartner Coach program offers individuals with disabilities and other barriers to employment with job training and case management services. The goal of the program is to enable those who may have been overlooked elsewhere to gain positive personal and workplace behaviors and skills, feel the pride of earning a paycheck and move toward self-sufficiency, build a work history, and develop the experience and skills to position them for higher-paying jobs outside of Goodwill. Team members participate in a career needs assessment and the development of an individualized case management plan, then go through training components to reach desired outcomes. This is the ninth year that Goodwill has received funding from the French Foundation for this purpose.
