Goodwill launched EmpowerOne in 2017, with a goal to provide a network of services that would allow individuals with disabilities to follow their own path to employment in the community.
At Goodwill we strive to meet the needs of the communities we serve through the Power of Work. Our mission has remained strong for 100 years and without you, it simply wouldn't be possible. Thank you for supporting our mission!
