For Goodness Sake was founded in 2013 in response to the challenges facing women transitioning out of homeless shelters into their own apartments. In August 2014, For Goodness Sake entered into a fiscal sponsorship agreement with the Main Street Community Foundation. This is the first time the foundation has sponsored any organization.
