Goodwill Dallas

Celebrating 100 years

How it works

Goodwill utilizes a person-centered approach to job readiness, training, coaching and job placement within Goodwill and in the community with our Employer Partners: Our Donated Goods program provides employment by offering work through the recycling and reselling of material donations in our stores throughout the community, while keeping millions of pounds of reusable items out of our landfills. Every dollar that is generated from our retail stores is invested back into creating employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities and disadvantaging conditions.

Our Workforce Development program provides a wide range of assessments, education, job training, coaching and career placement to North Texans.

The accomplishment and sustainability of our mission depends significantly on the support of a concerned and generous donor community
