Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE)

Goodwin House Foundation underwrites support to the Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) Program.  Goodwin House is one of only a small number of continuing care retirement communities in the nation to have an accredited CPE program.

As in a ministry setting, the Goodwin House CPE students develop long-standing relationships with residents, their families, and also with staff.  The students focus on developing pastoral skills as well as personal and spiritual development.  Unique features of our CPE Program are that it affords students an opportunity to serve residents who are receiving Hospice care, and it includes students from all religious faiths.  More than 200 students from across the country have commenced from the Goodwin House CPE Program.
