About the Company
In 1982, with an eye for design and a love of outdoor living, John Lodato-the son of an immigrant coal miner-began a collaboration with a small group of American artisans and craftsmen. His vision: to create a unique collection of high quality, hand-finished weathervanes and cupolas to add visual interest and distinction to homes of all types. After 15 years of growth and success, in 1997 John passed the leadership of Good Directions to his son Michael, who has led the company's expansion ever since. As we have grown and evolved over the years adding to our products and increasing our reach, we have never strayed from John's original vision: to offer home decor of unparalleled craftsmanship and lasting value supported by the highest standards of service and customer care.
Even from a humble start, our founder always dreamed of doing something to help those less fortunate. And now, at 95 years young, John continues his life-long commitment to helping others by volunteering in local soup kitchens and food pantries. The Good Directions family is proud to continue his tradition of giving back. Today, Good Directions works with many charitable organizations that are working to improve the lives of those around the country, including access to clean water and housing.
Founded locally, one charity in particular is close to home and close to our hearts: Off the Streets.
In Our Own Backyard
Off The Streets
We are honored to be able to support Off The Streets, an organization that started in our hometown of Danbury, CT. By working with other homeless service providers, Off the Streets is able to not only secure housing for the homeless, but transform it into a home and empower them to escape the trap of homelessness. At Good Directions we believe in the power of making a home yours.

How to Help
Off The Streets needs dedicated individuals to start local chapters and help end homelessness across America. Operating in 4 states (CT, PA, WA, and CA), Off The Streets chapters have helped get 5,000 homeless men, women and children into homes.
There is still much to be done.
