Morgan Memorial Goodwill Industries' mission is to help individuals with barriers to self-sufficiency to achieve independence and dignity through work. Not charity, but a chance.
Since its founding in 1895, Goodwill has been dedicated to the social justice mission of serving individuals, families, and communities with the greatest needs by helping people go to work to be able to support themselves and their families. Goodwill annually serves more than 10,000 low-income, unemployed and underemployed adults in its job training and career services programs, and more than 100 young people in its youth services programs. Goodwill makes high quality clothing and household goods available at low prices at its stores. Goodwill is a major employer of individuals with disabilities in the social enterprises it operates in retail, housekeeping and maintenance, food service, and light assembly.
Morgan Memorial Goodwill Industries is affiliated with Goodwill Industries International, a network of more than 165 community-based Goodwills in the United States and Canada.
Morgan Memorial Goodwill Industries collaborates with hundreds of employers to promote and facilitate the hiring of individuals facing barriers to employment. These collaborations bring trained, dedicated employees to the workforce, and help people achieve independence and dignity.
