Back in 2006, when I was incarcerated at Valley State Prison for Women (VSPW), I had to attend a re-entry class in order to get paroled. One of the assignments in this class was to find ten resources within your county from a resource guide VSPW supplied. Looking for any place to write down, I noticed that Goodwill was listed five different times. I wrote down Goodwill and made a mental note for myself when I paroled.
Raymond Hernandez came to Goodwill Application Orientation June 2012 after two terms in prison for drug abuse. He was having a difficult time kicking his addiction after being released. But that all changed after hearing that his significant other was expecting their first child.
