Goodwill to take over shelter for homeless women and children
Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania now is operating Healthy Start House, which provides housing and services for homeless women and their children, according to the Lawrenceville-based nonprofit.
Adagio Health, a Downtown-based, nonprofit provider of health services for women, had been operating Healthy Start House in Duquesne since 1997.
Adagio Health wanted to transfer the facility to Goodwill because of its housing program experience, Adagio Health President and Chief Executive Officer Richard L. Baird Jr. said in a prepared statement.
At Healthy Start House, women learn life skills and develop short- and long-term goals focused on finding a job and a permanent place to live, Goodwill said.
Goodwill's training and education programs and support services will be available to them, the nonprofit said.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
