Help Others Achieve a Better LIfe - Give Today!
Goodwill Industries of the Valleys is dedicated to helping people with disabilities and disadvantages overcome barriers to success. Goodwill programs help youth, adults, and seniors throughout the New River, Roanoke, and Shenandoah Valleys, empowering them to achieve their greatest potential.
Goodwill Programs serve our local communities in a variety of ways:
Science Camp, Science Club, Youth Work Experiences,
and Youth Mentoring
programs assist youth in underserved communities who are at risk of substance abuse, teen pregnancy, school dropout, and juvenile crime so they can be on a path to a brighter future.
provides high school students with disabilities the opportunity to receive education and on-site training that allows them to be work ready upon graduation.
Adults with severe disabilities receive services through Goodwill's Medicaid Waiver Discovery Services
which include Group Day Support, Community Engagement, and Community Coaching. These programs assist individuals to help them gain the skills they need to achieve greater independence.
Re-Entry program seeks to ensure that people who have a past, can also have a future. Adults with criminal backgrounds receive employment services that foster confidence and skill building necessary for a successful transition to a stable productive life.
Careers in Technology
helps individuals age 17 and older to gain the skills needed to have a career in the technology industry. The program seeks to help people who are unemployed or are having trouble making ends meet with their current job. Those who qualify for the program receive skills training and the opportunity to earn credentials to get their career started on the right foot.
Through the Senior Community Service Employment Program
(SCSEP), Goodwill provides part-time employment and training in community service positions for individuals age 55 and older who have a low income.
Last year, your support helped Goodwill provide services to nearly 45,000 individuals through Central and Southwest Virginia, and place almost 3,500 people in competitive employment in our communities!
Over 89% of Goodwill's revenues support job training and employment programs that help people help themselves.
The impact goes far beyond the individual successes of those participating in Goodwill programs. Families are stronger and more financially secure; local businesses benefit from a well-trained and committed workforce; and our community has more citizens who are able to contribute, give back, and make a positive impact.
You are changing lives through your support of Goodwill!
