GoodLife U

A full and integrated toolbox of accessible, practical, and affordable solutions to enable doing more with limited resources.

Expanding the capacity of community-service providers nationwide

They say if you want to go far, go together—and we agree. That’s why GoodLife partners with mission-driven organizations across the country to achieve win-win-win solutions for sustainably improving the lives of people who need support and the direct support professionals (DSPs) who provide care. When you partner with GoodLife U, everyone benefits. Together we can share resources, leverage costs, and increase capacity while preserving your agency’s independence and improving your bottom-line.


Workforce 101

We like to start here. Put more margin in your mission with GoodLife U's workforce schedule and pay strategies.

Where GoodLife U's labor strategies have been put into action, the results are lower turnover, an increase in wages for DSPs, fewer vacancies, reduced reliance on part-time staff, fewer different people involved in care (which means higher quality care), improved stability, and more.

Stacy Soria, Chief Strategy & People Officer at Koinonia

“The process to implement new schedules was HARD for staff and managers, not knowing all of the ‘why’ behind the changes being made. BUT NOW, those same staff are speaking up about how happy they are and about how their quality of life has improved tremendously. We even had a manager share that this week was the first time her schedule didn’t include direct care hours she had to cover – and stories like this are all over the place. I am so grateful we didn’t let the challenges of change keep us from all of the rewards.”


Tim Frey, President/Owner of VistaCare, Inc.

"What we learned from the GoodLife team about schedules and pay strategies has made a huge impact here. We are still facing an uphill battle with the DSP crisis, but we feel armed and ready. Next we are preparing for integration with iLink, which is extremely exciting. Our industry faces real challenges, but partnering with GoodLife has been positive and empowering."
