The Gooden Center has for over half a century been a beacon of hope to those suffering from substance abuse and mental health issues. A safe port in the storm.
Amid the current, rapid spread of COVID-19 and the overwhelmed state of our medical professionals and infrastructure, the mission of The Gooden Center is more vital than ever.
In order to provide relief to those that are more adequately equipped to handle the current crisis, The Gooden Center has adapted its staff and facilities to meet more stringent standards. We do so in order to continue our mission and to free up resources for those in dire need.
Every man or woman in a Gooden Center bed is one more hospital bed free that wouldn’t have been otherwise. Every successful admission to our facilities is one less drain on doctors, nurses and medical infrastructure at a time when every single bit matters. As a 501c3 non-profit organization the cost to make these changes has been significant, but necessary.
It's an undertaking we are honored to pursue.
The Gooden Center helps people. That is what we have always done and what we will continue to do. Like our clients though, we cannot do so alone. During these times The Gooden Center has not taken a back seat. We are not content to ride this out. We are, instead, doing more and not less. We need your help to keep the lights on. Your help to keep the doors open for the next man or woman searching for hope.
Please help us on our journey. Help us continue to combat the stress and eleviate the overwhelmed capacity of our first responders and medical professionals.
Help us help others.
