Hope. Opportunity. A second chance. These are some of the feelings inspired within people who became involved with Goodwill.
For many Goodwill is the first yes after so many others said no. We are at first a friend, and then we become a family, together working toward the common goal of securing a path to self-sufficiency through the Power of Work!
