Resident Councils

Residents are the heart and soul of Goodwin House Alexandria and Goodwin House Bailey’s Crossroads. Their input is valued informally, as they see leadership and team members throughout the day, and also formally, through Resident Councils in both communities. Elected by their resident neighbors, Council members contribute their guidance and countless hours to make their community a welcoming, vibrant and caring place to live.
