Success Stories

Liberty Mutual

BRING CONNECTIONS HOME

Liberty Mutual and Goodwill share a strong commitment to accessibility for individuals of all abilities. As a longstanding Goodwill partner, Liberty Mutual has provided many types of support over the years.

Liberty Mutual now provides financial support for Project SEARCH, a collaboration with the Boston Public Schools that offers a school-year internship program to prepare high school students with developmental disabilities for competitive employment. Liberty Mutual has a longstanding relationship with Charlestown High School, one of the Project SEARCH school partners.

“Within the last two years we commissioned research about young adults with disabilities and workforce development. The most important factors for success were mentors, education, and positions that paid a living wage,” said Melissa M. MacDonnell, President of the Liberty Mutual Foundation. “All of these factors are delivered with compassion and consistency by the staff at Goodwill. Like Liberty, they’re committed to the future of the participants.”

Employees of the company also volunteer at Goodwill through Serve with Liberty, Liberty Mutual’s annual day of community service. In 2018, seventeen volunteers participated – they joined adults with developmental disabilities in the Day Habilitation program for activities, assisted program participants involved in on-the-job-training in Goodwill’s Distribution Center, and participated in mock interviews for individuals enrolled in work-readiness programs.

“We are grateful to Liberty Mutual for providing both financial and volunteer support and engaging in direct conversations about how best to advance our shared goal of empowering people of all abilities to engage more fully in their lives and communities,” said Joanne Hilferty, President and CEO of Goodwill.
