Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida continues to serve adults with disabilities
By: Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida
"A communication to waiver support coordinators and several Facebook discussion posts reported that Suncoast Goodwill ADTs (adult day training programs) were closing, and as Southwest Florida is part of the APD Suncoast service region, many people mistakenly believe it includes our Goodwill services," states Tess Benham, Goodwill SWFL Director of Community Support Services."
Florida's Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD) Suncoast region includes the Gulf coast areas from Tampa to Naples. There are several individual Goodwill organizations within that territory including Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida.
Ms. Benham states that Goodwill SWFL remains committed to serving adults with disabilities through the Pathways to Opportunity and Pathways to Work programs, and as provider of the Trailways Camp.
"We continue to innovate and look for new ways to better serve our community," states Benham. "Currently, 81 adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities are enrolled in our adult day training program, Pathways to Opportunity."
Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida is committed to serving people with disabilities and disadvantage through Southwest Florida through life-changing programs that lead to independence. For more information, visit www.GoodwillSWFL.org.
