When someone comes to Goodwill looking for employment, we look at the whole person and their unique set of needs. For this reason, all of our partners are carefully selected to help participants address barriers in a variety of relevant areas, such as education, health, financial, legal and emergency assistance. Helping a person reach their fullest potential is an all-in commitment that requires vision, scale and experience. We, along with our partners, are prepared to take on this challenge.
