It can be hard to find a job when you have had a difficult past. That's why we partner with local businesses that see people for the value they can bring and are willing to give them a second chance.

Goodwill can provide training and employment assistance to prepare you for a good job so you can enjoy a bright future.

Here's what to expect when you contact Goodwill:

  • An initial assessment to determine if the program is a good fit. 
  • An evaluation of your skills and interests.
  • Job training to help you become ready for employment. 
  • Job seeking and support services to help you earn a good job. 
  • A host of services to meet your unique needs, such as counseling, housing, clothing, and transportation.

When you complete your training, you may:

  • Begin an apprenticeship in your chosen field.
