We help people discover and develop their God-given gifts through education, work and career development services.
Dignity and growth through work.
I am proud to be Goodwill.
Service - I will practice service above self.
Ownership - I will take ownership.
Accountable - I will be accountable.
Respect - I will respect others and act with integrity.
Dr. Edgar J. Helms, Jr., founded the Goodwill movement in Boston in 1902 based on one simple philosophy: What people really want is "not charity, but a chance" to work. His philosophy continues today in more than 200 independent Goodwill locations in 24 countries, including North America. Collectively, Goodwill Industries is the largest employer in the world of people with disabilities and annually helps a half-million people find work.
So the next time you donate to us, shop with us, or outsource your supplementary work to us, you are really helping to provide meaningful jobs to people who simply seek a hand up, not a handout.
