Goodwill Industries Stands for Work
Everything Goodwill Industries does, all it stands for, can be summed up in one word… WORK. Its mission is to help people with disabilities and other special needs find and retain work in their chosen occupations. This is why Goodwill Industries exists.
Goodwill is unique in that it is entrepreneurial. It operates businesses that provide both work and training. Through its numerous enterprises, Goodwill paid nearly $2,247,000 in wages last year.
For 60 years Goodwill in Mississippi has been helping people with severe disabilities and other special needs receive training and services that can help them become employable. It is making a positive contribution to the work force.
Goodwill is part of a community in the process of continuous and profound change. We believe strongly that the best days for our community are yet to come. Our community holds great promise for the future. Goodwill is committed to being one of the builders of our community by helping people make the transition to the work place and become contributing participants to society.
Goodwill has taken an active role in fostering cooperation among a network of providers in a supportive community. Goodwill is well positioned to improve its results for the future. Opportunities for meaningful, productive work create an environment for success, and with the assistance of our partners in rehabilitation, we look forward to increased services for people we serve.
The annual Goodwill Salute Dinner supports the services provided to our employees which in turn reinforces their transition into becoming productive citizens of our community. When you complete this nomination form it provides an opportunity for a community volunteer to be honored. It also provides continued support of the services provided by Goodwill Industries.
