It’s Open House for the Goodwill/Habitat ReHouse!

February 15, 2012

We are thrilled to announce that the Goodwill/Habitat ReHouse will be open this weekend for public tours! As you may remember, we have been working with Habitat and a wonderful team of partners and sponsors to rehab, remake and repurpose a home in Villa Heights for a Habitat Charlotte family.

After the home was donated to Habitat by the City of Charlotte last year, we reached out to inquire about on-the-job training opportunities for students in our Construction and Green Jobs training program. The house turned into a perfect collaboration for training and for education – not just for our students but for the entire Charlotte community!

The ReHouse is also the launch of our newest business venture – Goodwill Construction Services.

We’re now a fully licensed general contractor available for hire! Not only do our business ventures help fund our much-needed job training programs, but they also provide on-the-job training opportunities and employment opportunities for our students. It’s a win-win! Click here to find out more about Goodwill Construction Services.
