The Gainesville Opportunity Center is a non-profit that helps adults living with chronic mental illness rejoin the community and find jobs.
We follow a recovery through work model where Members come and participate in our work day. Members work side by side with our staff in order to build confidence. They see others with mental illness succeeding while proving to themselves they can, too. From there, the GOC helps Members find jobs and gives them continued support while working.
