Mission & Region
Our Mission: Enable employment by providing opportunities for personal and professional growth.
Southern Oregon Goodwill Industries is headquartered in Medford, Oregon with Workforce Development offices in Klamath, Josephine, Jackson, Douglas, and Siskiyou Counties. We provide services to more than 4,000 people every year and directly employ more than 300 others in social services, administration, retail and operations.
Community donations of goods and financial gifts provide vital funding for our programs. Donors are also a vital first step in Goodwill’s eco-friendly business model to reduce, reuse and recycle — keeping over 8 million pounds of unwanted items out of landfills annually. Each year, 85 percent of revenue generated from our nine retail stores, three as-is outlets, and recycling efforts fund career services ranging from skills assessment and job search, to training and placement, to family and financial stabilization classes.
At Goodwill, we believe that work has the power to help build self-sufficiency for individuals and their families. Behind every store are stories of Southern Oregonians whose lives have been transformed by the opportunity to reach their full potential with support from Goodwill.
