Planning & Achieving Goals

Goodwill provides job training and employment counseling for people who face barriers to finding and keeping a job, including people with disabilities or life-changing injuries, recipients of public assistance, military veterans, people with criminal history, and people with limited education or work history.

Our mission is carried out through a variety of programs and services, all with one goal — to help people with disadvantages become more successful, productive, and independent.

  • Skills assessment and counseling to examine options and explore careers to determine a career path

  • Resource coordination to identify needs and available community resources
  • Job search preparation from developing resumes to developing answers to interview questions
  • Job search assistance and support
