Goodwill Inn Shelter

When every door seems closed…OURS IS OPEN

The Goodwill Inn located in Traverse City, MI., is the largest homeless shelter in Northern Michigan. The Inn provides the first line of defense for people who have lost their homes and are trying to build stable, productive lives.

In operation since 1979, the Goodwill Inn welcomes anyone experiencing homelessness. The shelter is an 80+ bed facility that provides emergency and transitional shelter for men, women and families. Pete’s Place youth wing serves youth 14 – 17 years of age.

Our Mission: To provide safe, supportive shelter to homeless adults and families. We instill hope through service and compassion, offering guests a path to rebuilding their lives.

Our Vision: That every individual and family have a safe, decent, affordable place to live.

Who are the homeless?

At the Goodwill Inn, we see those experiencing homelessness for what they really are…very familiar faces.

They sit beside us in church
They go to school with our children
They work at local businesses
They are mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, sisters and brothers

Each of them is experiencing homeless because of personal crisis.
