THE STORY:

GOLDIES PLACE wrote -

Based on our belief in human potential, Goldie’s Place assists adults who are homeless to become self-supporting and financially independent by providing confidence-building dental treatment, career development, job placement, and retention support. 


Our Dental Services provide comprehensive dental treatment and restorative services. We help patients achieve optimum oral health,  enhance their appearance and increase their confidence.The Dental Services Program helps homeless individuals maintain or attain dental wellness through free dental services provided by volunteer dentists and hygienists. There are very few sources of dental care available to people who are homeless. Exhibiting good dental hygiene and being pain free are essential to becoming employed and maintaining stable employment. 


 Through our partnership with University of Illinois at Chicago-College of Dentistry, we have established a nationally-recognized, first ever Student-Run Dental Clinic. Our Dental Clinic provides a hands-on experience in the field of public health dentistry to over 200 students in the last three academic years.
We have provided treatment to over 2500 homeless adults. We restore their oral health and free them of mouth pain. Our services have provided them with the tools and the knowledge needed to properly maintain their oral health as well as instruct their family in the future. 


 

EMPOWERING WITH A HAND UP, NOT A HAND OUT

Goldie’s Place has provided employment services to over 200 homeless men and women annually through its Employment Program. The program uses a team approach emphasizing accountability and a willingness to be open minded. Skill building includes job search techniques, resume writing, application preparation and interview and presentation skills.
The program’s comprehensive job search techniques, resume writing, application preparation, computer lab, interview and presentation skills resulted in job placement for close to 600 participants in the last five years.

Through our Employment Assistance, we empower participants to find jobs by providing:

  • Job search tools and workplace knowledge through our week-long pre-employment training seminar
  • Personal coaching and case management support
  • Connections to companies with job openings
  • Back-to work clothing closet stocked with lightly used business and on-the job clothing

We receive and exchange referrals with over 110 homeless serving agencies annually. Goldie’s Place provides employment services to approximately 250 homeless men and women each year through its Employment Program!
