Mission Moment: Meet Philip

By community, Mission Services, Testimonials, Workforce Development

Meet Philip L.

Philip came to Goodwill following incarceration looking to better his life and gain employment opportunities. “Goodwill has provided assistance with getting my driver’s license, work clothes and boots. I am currently residing in Toledo and am employed part-time at Expresso Carwash, and I am a part-time student at Topp of the Line Barber College. Since having been incarcerated I’ve gotten a closer relationship with my family and children. My future goals are getting my barber’s license, obtaining my LLC, and opening up my own barber shop.” Congratulations Philip, Goodwill looks forward to seeing the wonderful things you accomplish!
