You might arrive at Goodwin House because you’re looking for a job. But you’ll stay because we’re family.
The mission of Goodwin House Incorporated is to support, honor and uplift the lives of older adults and the people who care for them. That mission is essential to the culture, passion and sense of family you will find here. In fact, we start many of our meetings by sharing “mission moments” with one another.
“We support, honor and uplift not just the residents but also each other,” explains Fran Casey, Goodwin House’s Chief People Officer. “We want everyone who lives, works and visits Goodwin House to find a place of welcome and belonging.”
This mission and our passion for it translates into a workplace that finds a way to help staff, residents, members, guests and family every day and especially in times of need. It might be as simple as offering a kind word or air high-five to someone having a bad day. Or it could be a program that pays for citizenship or tuition fees of team members. It might be a class that helps you learn something to further your career. If someone needs something, we find a way to help.
Goodwin House is diverse and progressive, with nearly 900 team members who come from more than 60 countries. It doesn’t matter where you come from, what language you speak, the color of your skin, your gender identity or anything else—we are a family that takes care of our own.
Uplifting team members goes well beyond offering a hug or kind words. Our benefits are outstanding. And we offer them to full-time, part-time and PRN team members. Our complete package of benefits includes comprehensive health care, continuing education, retirement savings, tuition assistance and much more.
It’s no accident, given the lengths Goodwin House goes to uplift its staff members, that it was named one of the Top Workplaces in the Washington, D.C. area by The Washington Post. It’s also not surprising that more than 20% of the staff have served at Goodwin House for more than 10 years. “People do leave sometimes,” says Casey. “But they often come back.”
We hope you will join us. We hope that you will become a strong member of our family. We look forward to seeing you, and your family, grow and thrive among us.
