Justin Frenzel The Sanctuary 6 Support Team California State Polytechnic University San Luis Obispo, CA Subject: Letter of Support and Cooperation for The Sanctuary 6, Affordable Housing for Low-Income Veteran Families, Program Dear Justin, On behalf of Goodwill Central Coast, a California Non Profit Corporation (hereinafter called Goodwill), I am pleased to write this letter of support and cooperation with The Sanctuary 6 Program. The mission of Goodwill is to build lives, families, and communities by helping people with employment needs become successful, supported by innovative enterprises that preserve the earth’s resources. Goodwill Central Coast is the manager of the federal workforce system, America’s Job Center of California, in San Luis Obispo County and operates the employment services component of Supportive Services for Veterans Families (SSVF) program. Both programs focus on service priority to veterans, their spouses and dependents. As such, we are in a unique position to provide tremendous resources to help veterans and their families housed through your program with connections to job openings, work retention and career advancement, case management and supportive services, along with skill development activities to increase their earning potential. Homelessness is a significant barrier to employment success. Limited access to public transportation coupled with the stigma of homelessness prevents access to many entry-level and middle-skill employment opportunities in our community. By providing housing stability through this project, you will satisfy both personal and logistical needs to allow veterans and their families to focus on self-sufficiency, obtaining and retaining employment, and improving their position in the labor market. In closing, I strongly support your efforts to house veterans and their families in San Luis Obispo County and look forward to providing services that meet the long-term employment and economic needs of Sanctuary 6 residents. Respectfully,

Allison Schiavo Director of Workforce Services Goodwill Central Coast 805-903-1424 aschiavo@ccgoodwill.org Goodwill Central Coast 880 Industrial Way, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401
