Seattle Goodwill’s core mission is to serve our community with free critical services and we remain committed to serving and assisting our students and employees throughout our current public health crisis. In line with official public health guidance on social distancing, all in-person job training and education classes will be postponed at least until the end of the month, and longer if circumstances warrant. During this time, our job training staff will continue to provide support services and case management to students and employees via phone and web-based conferencing.
Impacts and Outcomes
The extent of Goodwill’s impact on our community is immeasurable. But here, we’ve attempted to provide just a glimpse of how we are changing lives through jobs. The figures provided cover the year-long period from July 2018 through June 2019.
Seattle Goodwill, a mission-driven organization, works to address poverty and strengthen communities by preparing people for employment in the current and future marketplace.
