Changing Lives in the Community
The power of work is a wondrous thing. It goes beyond satisfying our basic needs. Equally important, it’s transformative, contributing to our personal well-being, pride and a sense of independence.
Yet individuals with disabilities or other challenges often miss out in participating with all aspects of life.
At Goodwill of Orange County, we believe in changing lives. We believe individuals with disabilities or other challenges should have the opportunity to achieve their fullest potential. Whether re-entering the job market or joining the workplace for the first time, they should have the prospect of attaining even greater self confidence and personal worth.
Thanks to Goodwill, my son Kyle has the job of his dreams and a paycheck that allows him the freedom to make choices for himself.
By providing quality education, training and employment services, we empower individuals to be productive and independent based on their abilities and interests. Last year, the results were powerful:
- 2,238 people served through Goodwill’s Workforce development services
- 557 individuals currently work as Goodwill-trained employees
- 673 people started new jobs with the help of Goodwill
Giving people with disabilities and other barriers the opportunity to achieve their highest levels of personal and economic independence is essential to our mission.
