Giving back to the community starts with our employees
Half of Goodwill employees report a disability or a disadvantaging condition. Goodwill seeks to support all employees and their families who are facing hardship. The Employee Support Services Program gives employees emergency assistance, resources, life-skills training, and/or financial assistance so that a change in condition does not mean loss of income.
- Emergency assistance fund
