Goodwill's Mission is to help individuals prepare for, find and retain employment. We believe in The Power of Work. It's about having a chance, not charity. ?It's about feeding one's family with money that is earned. It's about having a job. It's about the self-respect that comes with a paycheck. It's about lowering crime by raising job skills. It's about helping children by hiring their parents. It's about reducing welfare by increasing job training for jobs that pay real wages to support and strengthen real families. It's about job training. That's what Goodwill is all about.
