Goodwill helps to put a diverse cohort of job-seekers representing a broad cross-section of society on the path to living-wage employment. In 2017, Goodwill Columbus provided approximately 1.65 million hours of service to over 2,000 individuals through day programs, community-based supported living services, employment training, and job placement services. Goodwill Workforce Development placed 239 people into competitive employment with 181 employers. 2,079 volunteers provided 30,000 hours of service to Goodwill. Goodwill’s 1,200 plus employees include 300 staff who have self-reported a disability. The threefold mission of Goodwill Columbus – People, Planet and Prosperity (to support human service programming) – adds immeasurably to the quality of life of some of Columbus’s most vulnerable citizens. Goodwill mission programs are more critical now than ever and help thousands of Central Ohioans each year. With the incredible support from community partners, generous donors, and dedicated and caring staff and volunteers, Goodwill is looking forward to a future that continues to transform lives.
