The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) International last month announced Goodwill Manasota has been accredited for an additional period of three years—the highest level of accreditation CARF provides. Goodwill’s accreditation status will be in force through the end of 2024 for its Job Connection program.
Goodwill’s Job Connection, a free service, is designed to help individuals obtain long-term employment or transition to better paying jobs. Through community partnerships, Goodwill matches jobless and underemployed workers with companies seeking well-trained, dependable employees. Additionally, Goodwill employs 700 team members, many of whom have self-identified barriers to employment. Goodwill team members have access to individual coaching as well as on-the-clock education and training to help them achieve career and life success.
