Goodwill believes every person has value and can contribute. Working empowers and encourages individuals. Our core principles embrace the inherent value of every individual. We have worked with people with disabilities since our founding.
How We Can Help
Individuals with disabilities, their guardians or job coaches are encouraged to review our current job listings and submit an application.
TICKET TO WORK
Goodwill is also a Ticket to Work provider. Ticket to Work is a free and voluntary program available to individuals currently receiving SSI/SSDI between the ages of 18 and 62. The goal of the Ticket to Work program is to help Social Security beneficiaries return to the workforce. Participants can use Ticket to Work to pay for employment services at Goodwill.

We offer intensive employment services for individuals with disabilities, often following a referral from Indiana Vocational Rehabilitation Services (Voc Rehab), a division of the Family and Social Services Administration. We also help employers increase their hiring of individuals with disabilities.

Vocational Rehabilitation Services
The state’s Vocational Rehabilitation (Voc Rehab) office will determine if an individual has a disability that prevents them from gaining employment without support, then refer that job-seeker to an approved agency such as Goodwill.
Our services include discovery of employment goals, job trials and job assessment geared toward determining each individual’s best fit for employment. Goodwill also offers interview prep, job placement, on-the-job training and support, job coaching, one-on-one support and help with developing accommodations. Learn more about Indiana Voc Rehab online or call 1-800-545-7763.
For individuals who are Medicaid-waiver eligible and in need of employment assistance, Goodwill can provide ongoing, long-term support.
This allows a specialist from Goodwill to continue to monitor the participant’s employment stability and help them gain new skills to further their career path, leading to greater independence.
Goodwill’s Disability Services team is experienced in consulting with employers on disability human resource issues, including reasonable accommodations and how to implement ADA rules and regulations.
Goodwill provides employers with access to a diverse talent pool of individuals who are qualified in their industry.
