Charting impact

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

For more than a century, Ohio Valley Goodwill has been dedicated to the mission of putting people to work in the Greater Cincinnati community. The organization serves more than 3500 people with disabilities, our nation's veterans and others with barriers to employment each year. In 2018, Goodwill helped 907 individuals to obtain competitive employment and experience personal success. The Goodwill mission is made possible through community partnerships with County Boards of DD, Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities and the Veterans Administration. Goodwill believes that helping people to achieve self-sufficiency through work helps our communities and overall economy in a proactive and important way. Additionally, in response to families and County Boards of DD, Goodwill has created and operates Center for Advocacy, Education and Recreation (CARE) programs which are designed to help individuals become fully involved in the larger community both socially as well as through volunteering. The CARE programs serve approximately 80 individuals in a variety of settings and offer an array of community field trips each day. Goodwill's CARE program has received the "Award of Excellence" from Hamilton County DD Services in the past and all of its programs and services have received more than 100 local, national and regional awards since 2003. The overall goal of the organization is to provide outstanding services to men and women with the ultimate outcome being employment as desired by the individuals served. This overall goal is supported in large part by the business lines operated by Ohio Valley Goodwill including its network of 18 retail stores, 30 donation centers and its Industrial Services division. These business lines provide more than 60% of the operating revenue needed to continue to support the employment and training programs that the organization offers. Beyond it's programs and services, Ohio Valley Goodwill also takes pride in its history of environmental stewardship; helping to recycle more than 55 million pounds of donated materials each year including textiles, hard goods, cardboard, steel and electronic equipment and office paper. The organization was recognized for its recycling efforts in 2014 by Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste District with the "Excellence in Reuse Award." For more than a century, Goodwill has worked hard to become a leader in the provision of employment and training services for people in the Greater Cincinnati community and as a result, is viewed as a valuable partner in the larger business community. The organization is the Title Sponsor of the PigAbilities event; a special event within the annual Flying Pig Marathon; which offers an inclusive experience for athletes of all abilities to be part of this high profile community event. More than 300 athletes with disabilities and coaches are expected to participate in the 2020 event. Goodwill is proud of its commitment to the community.

To continue to expand our partnerships with local County Boards of DD, Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities, the Veterans Administration and other possible referral partners. To continue to grow our business lines including Retail and Donations to ensure the ability to serve citizens in the Greater Cincinnati community. These efforts require the on-going development of new programs and services reflective of community need as well as promotional efforts to increase awareness of Ohio Valley Goodwill as an Employment and Training resource. In addition, to ensure the financial health and stability of the organization, Goodwill dedicates itself to strategic planning for incremental growth of its business lines including annual opening of new Goodwill stores and donation centers as well as expansion of services including the organization's new Transition and Summer Youth program. The Transition and Summer Youth Program is designed to help transition students with disabilities who are preparing for graduation from high school to access programs and services to help them attain their post-graduation goals in terms of employment. Initially, this program served 12 individuals and now, in its 6th year has expanded to serve more than 100 students. Goodwill works with employers in the Greater Cincinnati area in order to offer this service which may in some cases, result in permanent employment for some students following graduation. It is only through the prudent, strategic planning of the Executive Management team in partnership with its Board of Directors under the leadership of President and CEO, Joseph Byrum that this mission of service is possible. Recently honored with a lifetime achievement award from Goodwill Industries International, Byrum has been responsible to a large extent for the current success of the organization which has expanded exponentially under his tenure. The current Five Year plan addresses departmental goals in all aspects of the organization which reflect continued growth as well as enhancements of practices and procedures across all business lines. The organization looks forward to another century of service in the Greater Cincinnati community as it tailors its service offerings to reflect the larger needs of its local citizens.

Goodwill on-going, long-time partnerships with its primary referral sources including 4 County Boards of DD, Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities and the Veterans Administration will help to allow the organization to sustain its commitment to being one of largest Employment and Training Centers in Southwest Ohio. Ohio Valley Goodwill always remains open to expanding its partnerships with referral sources based on community need and feasibility. Goodwill's network of 18 retail stores and 30 donation centers along with its Auto Auction and Industrial Services division provide more than 60% of the organization's operating revenue annually. In 2020, Ohio Valley Goodwill will launch an expanded digital media marketing campaign which includes both traditional and social media and is focused to building brand awareness as a preferred shopping destination and to cultivate a younger demographic in terms of shoppers. As the health and vitality of the organization's retail stores is critical to the organization's ongoing ability to serve people with disabilities and our nation's veterans in the Greater Cincinnati community, it is felt that an investment in an expansion of digital marketing is warranted. The retail campaign focuses on positioning Goodwill as a top of mind resource for environmentally friendly fashion at reasonable prices. In addition, through its social media efforts, the Goodwill mission of service is conveyed through the showcasing of personal success stories of individuals served through its programs and services. In a corresponding campaign, the organization's weekly Auto Auction is highlighted as a viable option for both car buyers and vehicle donors. These business lines are the lifeblood of the organization's ability to serve more than 3500 people annually and the generous donations of the Greater Cincinnati community help to sustain its vitality. As a result, it is very important to do everything possible to ensure top of mind awareness of Ohio Valley Goodwill on a number of levels- Employment and Training Center; Preferred Shopping Destination as well as Auto Auction and Donation Center; as all of these business lines support the continued operational capability of the organization.

For more than a century, Ohio Valley Goodwill Industries has been helping people with disabilities and our nation's veterans to obtain employment in the Greater Cincinnati community. The organization's efforts have been recognized with more than 100 local, regional and national awards and the organization is perceived as a vital part of the local business community. Ohio Valley Goodwill has established important long-time partnerships with 4 County Boards of Developmental Disabilities as well as Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities and the Veterans Administration. Annually, the organization serves more than 3500 people with barriers to employment and in 2018, helped 907 to get jobs in the community. Last year, Goodwill contributed more than $70 million dollars to the local economy (though total wages paid, total wages earned, total taxes paid and governmental assistance saved). Over its more than a century of service, Ohio Valley Goodwill has helped more than 300,000 people with disabilities and our nation's veterans to attain employment and achieve personal success. Over the years, Goodwill has continuously improved its ability to provide services to help people obtain and maintain their employment opportunities. In addition, Goodwill has continued to expand its service offerings to include non-work options such as the Center for Advocacy, Recreation and Education (CARE) which promote community inclusion in response to the requests of individuals and families. While Ohio Valley Goodwill takes great pride in the history of success that each and every person serves achieves, the organization is always looking for ways to continue to be responsive and supportive of the larger needs of the community. Currently, Goodwill is expanding its partnership with Clermont DD in serving transition students and continues to work collaboratively with all of its community partners on addressing unmet needs. The organization will continue to maintain a balance of business line expansion in proportion to service offerings as Ohio Valley Goodwill moves forward in a new century of service.
