As a self-funding nonprofit, the revenue generated from our retail stores directly supports our vision of ending poverty through the power of work. We do this by offering no-cost career development, training and education services to anyone in need of a job.
Now, more than ever, these services are critical to help Floridians get back to work.
Goodwill’s mission services team is on the front lines to help people with unemployment applications and other critical job services. Our stores will re-open May 1st to help these services and provide value shopping options for our community.
We appreciate your support of Goodwill Industries – Big Bend where training, equals jobs, equals community.
Remember, Good WILL Overcome.
