Goodwin House dining is quality-based,

The greatest thing about working at Goodwin House is the flex schedule. Thanks to the schedule, I’ve been able to maintain my career and further my education at the same time. I am so grateful that I have this opportunity to be part of the Goodwin House team and to give back to the residents. - Zainab Thomas



We love having families visit Goodwin House, which is why our door is always open. – Harry Baldwin, Goodwin House Alexandria Executive Director
