What we aim to solve New!

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.
