Your donations truly make a difference

Thanks to your investment in our local mission, we are able to make a profound difference in our community by growing our programs and services, including supported employment, job skills training and stable housing . 

  • Neighbors with barriers to employment experience pride, belonging and independence through our Supported Employment program – participants are paired with Goodwill staff to support them in meaningful work at over 100 local employers.
  • With two group homes providing 24/7/365 support for individuals living with chronic mental illness, along with 74 subsidized apartment units, we are able to provide safe, affordable and stable housing – a place to call home is becoming more and more elusive and is a critical component in pursuing and maintaining employment.
  • Our Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program helps households with low to moderate income receive over $1 million in combined tax refunds every year, providing financial resources to pay for rent, bills, medication and other essentials.

Thank you for being part of the GOOD!
