Goodwill of Orange County
Goodwill of Orange County is much more than the sum of our thrift stores and donation centers. We offer job training, placement, and the tools to achieve individual success to people with disabilities and other barriers. But the most critical thing we offer is opportunity. The people we work with don't want charity, they want a chance to succeed. And they pursue success the same way we all do. By doing their best. Working with total dedication. And always trying to do better.
Goodwill Industries of Orange County was established in 1924 as a small venture and has become a major enterprise based on cultivating the creative potential in every person. Today, Goodwill Industries of Orange County is a nationally recognized leader in empowering people to become self-sufficient. Yet, with the shift away from government funding, finding valuable resources and financial support for programs is still one of our biggest challenges. We look towards a stronger collaboration with the people and businesses of our community to establish the support we need for pursuing and fulfilling our mission. With a professional staff of highly motivated and dedicated people, we have developed education, training, and employment services that utilize state-of-the-art technology. And we focus on the growth of individuals by assisting them with their work and social skills, cultural and language differences and aiding their access to a community that will allow them to enter the workplace and enhance their self-respect and dignity.
Goodwill is in the business of helping people who are facing barriers to get and keep jobs, which provides purpose, pride and dignity. We believe the power of work changes lives.
Over the next five years we intend to double the number of people we serve by providing services that are innovative and driven by the needs of the community.
