Are you in need of food? Goodwin University maintains a well-stocked food pantry of non-perishable food items for students in need.
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.
"The counseling department came in handy when I needed them. It was great to have that service available to me, free of charge, when I really needed someone to talk to."
Goodwin University offers a Diaper Program designed to help students with young children defray some of their household costs by offering free diapers to those who qualify. Students who are eligible can receive two packs of diapers, per child, per month, as long as they are enrolled at Goodwin University. Students who are eligible will receive notification of eligibility after census day.
"As a single mom of two children, with only one income while going to college, the diaper bank was a huge savior for me. Goodwin provided me with at least half of the diapers that I needed for my children."
