Most people think of Goodwill as just a thrift store. But our business is really about changing lives. We help match meaningful employment opportunities and pathways to independence for every individual seeking a new beginning, a second chance, or a step up. Our mission helps make independence a reality for the people we serve -- through the transformative power of a meaningful job.
