Our mission is to assist people with disabilities and other barriers to employment to live independently and become employed. Our vision is leading those we serve to sustainable economic independence.

We have four regional Opportunity Centers that serve our mission by providing meaningful training, individual support and employment assistance. We focus on long-term employment solutions by addressing our clients’ practical issues while inspiring their hope and self-confidence. These opportunity centers allow us to provide customized educational solutions, skills training, employment placement and other services.

We operate 17 stores selling donated clothing and household items, an advanced manufacturing facility, staffing agency and provide contract services to government entities in 33 Georgia and South Carolina counties. These operations generate more than $31M in annual revenues; funding programs and creating job opportunities.

We measure the number of people served, number of persons successfully securing employment and number of people earning credentials and attaining new work skills. Goodwill uses the case management software CaseWorthy to collect and evaluate data on its programs. CaseWorthy also tracks relationships with community organizations and employers.

In 2019, we served more than 6,500 program participants with more than 1,300 of them achieving sustainable employment. Our community impact is expanded by our position as an employer who continually develops the skills and educational attainment of our own associates so that those individuals can achieve their highest level of self-sufficiency.
