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.
