“My experience at Good Seed was very positive and motivating. The staff was friendly, helpful, and gave good advice. I learned lot of things during my stay here especially from the groups we had. I learned about the effect of drugs, STDs, money management and much more. I was able to save money and transfer to permanent housing. I can say, thanks to Good Seed my future is looking a lot brighter.”
“As a firm advocate for supporting low-income families’ efforts to attain financial stability, I am aware of the effects that homelessness and other risk factors have on family unification and stability. Good Seed provides youth with access to wrap around services that help preserve families and decrease the number of youth at risk.”
