2013 Smiles Campaign
All new and increased donations will be matched dollar-for dollar by an anonymous donor until December 31, 2013, automatically doubling the impact of your gift!
There’s a story behind every smile. Goldie’s Place is a crucial part of that story for thousands of homeless adults. Thanks to your ongoing support, we help them transform into healthy, hopeful and productive members of the community, by offering employability training, free dental care and job placement.

Goldie’s Place is committed to realizing our vision of renewing the spirit.
Otis is a 58-year-old African-American male who loves to smile but has had to settle for a grin. Otis was out of work for three years caring for a family member and was homeless for nearly eight years after the family home was foreclosed on.
Otis met with an Employment & Training Coach who assisted him in developing an employment plan. His motivation and desire to succeed paid off when he was hired full time by a Goldie’s Place partner employer. Later that same month, he secured housing in a supportive housing program. Otis is now receiving aesthetic dental services while awaiting his permanent partial, as a final step toward completing his transformation.
With the continuous support and encouragement of Goldie’s Place staff and volunteers, Otis found employment, housing and a new set of teeth. For the first time in many years, his spirit, and smile, have been renewed.
