Community Connects

Bridging Community Needs and Resources

East Waco Community Connect
Temple Community Connect

Heart of Texas Goodwill’s Community Connects are welcoming locations that house a convenient combination of Goodwill-operated services and other complementary resources provided by partnering organizations.

The services and co-locating partners in each Community Connect vary in size and scope depending on the needs of the respective communities in which they operate. However, each Community Connect is designed to help community members overcome barriers that prevent them from gaining self-sufficiency and independence by providing access to:

  • Computers
  • Internet Access
  • Printers and Fax Machine
  • Community Resources
  • Employment Training
  • Financial Literacy Education
  • Soft Skills Training
  • Transportation Assistance
  • Technology Training
  • Upskilling Classes
  • Customized Assistance

Community Connects have Resource Navigators prepared to help community members identify their needs and provide tools to access local resources. If Goodwill doesn’t provide the service, Resource Navigators can help locate other community organizations that do!

For more information or assistance, please visit your local Community Connect or Contact a Resource Navigator to receive assistance.
