The GOODZone in Southwest DC was established by GOODProjects in the largest public housing community in the District. It is the geographical focus of a place-based and community-driven model for transitioning entire communities out of poverty. The core program, Family Success Planning, works with families to build on their strengths, help them set goals, and identify the supports they need to reach self-sufficiency. During the pandemic, GOODProjects leaned into its community’s needs and developed the GOODLearning Hub so that kids would have a safe and nurturing environment to excel academically through high-intensity tutoring. Its Feeding Program continues to deliver more than 500 weekly bags of fresh, mostly local produce. And its GOODCamp is a six-week summer enrichment experience for children ages 8–17. The long-term goal? Lift 500 families out of poverty and into self-sufficiency – and serve as a model for communities nationwide.
