Employment is critical to self-sufficiency. In addition to direct employment, many of Goodwill’s programs and services focus on employability, skills training, industry certifications and more – with sustainable employment as a short- or long-term goal.
More than half of the people Goodwill employs have a disability, criminal history or lack a high school diploma. They are employed in:
- Goodwill has 80 retail sites in central and southern Indiana, including our retail stores, outlets, eCommerce division and Vintage Vogue boutiques.
- Our Commercial Services division, which assists companies with manufacturing, packaging and assembly services and holds contracts for janitorial and other services at federal government buildings in Indianapolis.
- Goodwill also employs teachers, nurses and a number of individuals in administrative and support positions.
