Goodwill provides to people with barriers to employment - particularly those with disabilities - an array of quality vocational and educational programs so they can work most independently.
Programs: Today, Goodwill operates five (5) lines of business:The HUMAN RESOURCES DEVELOPMENT GROUP provides our core human service to people with barriers to employment. This Group conducts assessments and offers education, training, placement, and long-term support. At Goodwill, we work hard to individualize those services, recognizing that all vocational training and employment services should be centered around the needs of the service participants and directed toward achieving the stated goals of those individuals. Because of this individualized approach, the possible combinations of services provided by Goodwill are varied. But the bottom line for the participant is the same; each individual is afforded a choice in the way the power of work will enhance his or her life.The RETAIL GROUP operates five retail stores in Fredericksburg, North Stafford, South Stafford, Tappahannock, and Culpeper. The Group's mission is to provide income to the core operations of the organization and work settings for program participants. The Retail Group does generate a net income that helps defray the costs of providing the human services components of our operation. With our rapidly growing operations, we are planning to establish additional retail stores and donation centers. Our newest retail store will be opening in mid 2007 and will be located in the Cosner Corner shopping area of Spotsylvania County. The INDUSTRIAL OPERATIONS GROUP is organized into "off-site" and "on-site" work groups. Its mission is to offer vocational opportunities for persons with disabilities in a variety of employment settings. The Off-Site Group operates custodial and administrative contracts with the federal government. Our current contracts include those with Marine Corps Base-Quantico, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Training Academy, and the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).The On-Site Group operates two lines of business: outsourcing and contract services, which are available to area business and industry, and commercial/industrial laundry services, marketed to health care, hospitality, and federal customers.
