Quality of Life Program

The Quality of Life Program encourages more activity and social interaction among Goodwin House residents through resident initiated and directed programs or activities.  The Foundation funds Quality of Life ideas submitted by residents that are outside of the respective operating budgets of both communities.  The Quality of Life Program is an example of an innovative program that was created, funded, and launched through a collaborative effort between residents and the Goodwin House Foundation.

The Foundation welcomes gifts to fund the future of the Quality of Life Program.  Following below are some highlights of Quality of Life programs, which residents, working collaboratively, have initiated.
