Scenes from Goodwill Industries.

Goodwill is all about putting people to work. We've witnessed its power in transforming lives. Work helps build self-confidence, independence and dignity. At Goodwill, we believe everyone deserves a chance to have these things in life. As the late John F. Kennedy once said, "All of us do not have equal talents, but all of us should have an equal opportunity to develop our talents." Goodwill is pleased to be able to provide this chance.

Since 1948, Goodwill has empowered thousands of local residents with special needs with the marketable job skills needed to succeed in the workplace. One job at a time, we are making a difference-strengthening both families and communities through the power of work.
