Since 1977, Marion Goodwill Industries has helped people with disabilities and barriers to employment find jobs by providing programs and services for people who want to work.
Goodwill turns donations of gently used goods into jobs and new careers for our clients. The sale of community donations in our retail stores and shopgoodwill.com help fund these services in the communities we serve.
Marion Goodwill fosters independence through housing, clothing and transportation. When you don't have a place to call home, money for a bus ticket, or suitable work clothes, gaining the confidence and self-sufficiency you need to obtain a job can seem impossible. Through Goodwill's Housing and Emergency Clothing Programs, individuals are able to find help in three key areas that can lead to success on the job front.
We give people who want to work the tools and the confidence to seek, secure and keep a job. Our Workforce Development Department helps individuals with disabilities and other barriers to employment explore possible careers, prepare for the job market, and find appropriate employment opportunities within their community. This is a referral based program and we work one on one with our consumers.
Our Education & Training Center offers free classes where participants learn essential skills for today's workplace, as well as how to search for a position, create a resume, complete an application and prepare for an interview.
It's never too early to learn about the power of work. Through our youth programing, we strive to provide young people with the opportunity to earn money and gain meaningful work experience; learn and develop the skills, attitudes, and commitment necessary to succeed in today's world of work; gain exposure to various career industries and interact with dynamic working professionals in a positive work environment.
