Our Purpose

In today’s world, getting and keeping a job is no easy task. More people in our communities need our help, especially for those with a disability, lack of work experience or poor work history. Sometimes people need a hand up, a chance to show the world what they can do. That’s what Goodwill strives to create and provide.

Current Programs

Donated Goods Program

Not only does your tax deductible donation support job training and employment programs, but 100% of all donated goods help people in our community access the support and services needed to succeed! Thousands of items are available daily in our stores.

Your purchases help fund programs moving someone towards employment, helping to build a stronger community for all of us.

Our retail stores also function as training centers offering training, work experience and assessment in a retail environment.

Goodwill Guide Program

Your Goodwill Guide can help connect you to local resources and locate supports in your community that can make a difference in your life, including affordable housing, parenting support, drug & alcohol treatment and so much more.

Your Goodwill Guide will answer questions and give encouragement to help you move forward.
