Hiring People with Disabilities


Training and employment are Goodwill's primary focus, and we pride ourselves in providing employers a ready and motivated workforce. We help individuals become contributing members of our community versus relying on other taxpayers and government assistance programs. We accomplish this in several ways.

We provide customer service training by offering "real work" experience at Goodwill, employers get employees who are ready to work and can hit the ground running.

Our full-service staffing and recruiting service, Goodwill TalentBridge, provides contract employment, contract-to-hire, direct placement, and recruitment outsourcing, so companies can "try before they buy."

Goodwill Workforce Connection Centers provide a vast pool of job candidates for employers. The Goodwill Workforce Connection Centers are a free service for anyone looking for a job—no appointment or referral is needed. These centers provide access to technology and online job listings, assist individuals to prepare their cover letters and resumes, and offer on-site job fairs for employers who are hiring. We are all about bringing workforce solutions to business.
