We at Goodwill Industries of Kentucky have teamed up with Maryhurst and other youth-service organizations in Louisville, such as YMCA Safe Place Services and JCPS, to assist young adults ages 18 to 24 through a grant-funded program.
The program is designed to connect young adults who may be or have been affected by homelessness or mental health conditions with resources to promote self-sufficiency, such as job placement and career counseling, financial literacy and housing.
The program, which launched in July, will be housed at 612 South Fourth street in Louisville, the soon-to-be hub for several programs and resource known as, “The Spot.” Through referrals from YMCA and JCPS, the program has already reached its 150-participant goal for its first year.
