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 ones 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 Pennsylvania is a private non-profit 501(c)(3) community-based organization that has been serving persons with disabilities in our community for more than 80 years. In line with our mission, Goodwill Industries of NEPA supports persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities to be included in all aspects of living including 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 within 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, which improves the overall quality of life of the individuals we serve and our community. Our professional staff are in compliance with national standards and licensing requirements for the services we provide.

An example of our program success is Goodwill's employment and education services program, Goodwill Employment, which was introduced to Lackawanna County's Treatment Court in 2018. For the 2018-2019 program year we served 26 individuals and 20 individuals were placed in full time competitive employment, a 77% employment placement rate. For 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 didnt meet the courts requirements, and individuals still searching for employment or educational opportunities. This program model has been extremely successful with a consumer group that faces many challenges.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
