Our Values


We embrace the mission in all that we do. We are dedicated to helping members of our community through the power of work.


We commit to demonstrating honesty, transparency, and sincerity when serving our stakeholders.


We are committed to lifelong learning in order to provide a sustainable platform for our mission to grow and flourish.


We pledge to be a forward thinking and visionary nonprofit agency, serving the changing needs throughout the communities we serve.


We hold ourselves to the highest standards of performance and measurements to ensure we are providing the highest level of service.


We embrace a culture of respect and value for all current and future stakeholders within the Goodwill organization.

Not charity, but a chance. Work greatly enhances the morale of those who help themselves and others by their labor in our industries.
