Building Pride, Purpose, and Dignity Through the Power of Work

Goodwill Employment WORKS is a supported employment program providing individualized job placement and retention services to adults living with a mental health diagnosis. Each program participant works with an employment specialist to identify promising job opportunities, succeed in the workforce, and achieve professional goals.

I know that God has put the Goodwill program within my path. It has been a blessing to find it and my employment specialist. Before them, I thought there was no hope for me to find work. The first two weeks of work were the happiest two weeks of my life; I was the happiest woman in the world. I have never been happier now that I have a job. I thank God and Goodwill’s EmploymentWORKS program.
