Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Everyday life is about opportunities, relationships, rights, and responsibilities. It is about being a member of the community, having a valued role, contributing to society, and having one’s rights as a citizen fully respected. (PA Department of Human Services, Office of Developmental Programs). Goodwill Industries of NEPA advocates for and practices this philosophy.

Continuously develop and provide services​ that uniquely meet the needs of our community.

Goodwill Industries of Northeastern PA (NEPA) is a private non-profit 501(c)(3) community-based organization that has been serving persons with disabilities in our community for over 75 years. In line with our mission, Goodwill Industries of NEPA supports persons with disabilities to be included in all aspects of living: employment, socialization, recreation, and community living. We value what is important to people with disabilities, believe they have a right to an everyday life, and operate the frameworks necessary to implement our values and beliefs.

Our services are designed to promote inclusion, autonomy, and economic independence for persons in our community, thereby improving the overall quality of life of the individuals we serve and the quality of our community. Our professional staff are in compliance with national standards and licensing requirements for the services we provide.

One example of our program success is Goodwill’s employment and education services program, Goodwill Employment, was introduced to Treatment Court in 2018. For the program year 2018- 2019, we served 26 individuals. 20 individuals were placed in full time competitive employment. This averages out to a 77% employment placement rate for this time period. Including 2018-2020, a total of 57 individuals were served with 84% of them being involved in full/part-time employment and/or full/part-time education programs. The remaining 16% of individuals include those with documented disabilities, incarcerated participants that didn’t meet the court’s requirements, and individuals still searching for employment or educational opportunities. This program model has been extremely successful with a consumer group that has a lot of challenges
