Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Employment opportunities are the building blocks of healthy communities. When people have jobs, they are more likely to be stably housed, have resources to care for their families, and contribute to the local economy. As a result, people thrive and communities prosper. The majority of individuals served by Goodwill of Central and Coastal Virginia (GCCVA) are either unemployed or underemployed and face barriers to gainful employment such as lack of education, skills, transportation or childcare. Others have disabilities, histories of incarceration, or limited exposure to workforce opportunities as a result of generational poverty. GCCVA plays a leading role in breaking through barriers and connecting people to jobs. In addition to economic benefits, work gives individuals the opportunity to develop a sense of pride and purpose, reach their highest level of self-sufficiency, and productively contribute to the community.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Goodwill Workforce Development Programs

Goodwill's Workforce Development Services provide individuals with challenges to employment with the training, education, and resources they need to gain employment - at no cost to the job seeker. 

Through the Begin@Home program, Goodwill offers a unique opportunity for job seekers to not only earn a steady paycheck, but participate in paid, on-the-job training and skills development along with setting goals and building career plans alongside a dedicated Career Advisor, preparing individuals for work in their selected career path.

Goodwill believes that work is a foundation for empowering individuals, strengthening families and building stronger communities. While a plethora of job training and skills development programs exist throughout our community, very few address the fact that the individuals most in need of these opportunities are likely living paycheck to paycheck, and cannot afford to postpone work to better their skills.

The Board works to ensure that GCCVA’s social enterprises produce a return on investment that meets the workforce development needs of the communities in our territory.

The scale and scope of our mission services uniquely positions GCCVA to align services with a wide range of collaborative partners, adapt to meet shifting community needs, and to produce greater collective impact.
