Are you in need of food, clothing, hygiene resources, etc.? These items are free at the Co-op for current Goodwin University and magnet school students. The Co‑op ensures that no Goodwin student has to choose between affording school, putting food on the table, or having their basic needs met.


Need someone to talk to? Counseling/therapy is available. Counseling/therapy is a process in which you enter into a relationship with a trained professional in order to gain deeper self-understanding and to identify more effective ways of responding to life’s challenges.
