I am a board member and have seen the results of Goodwill's efforts on many occasions. It is interesting to see the amount of assistance and effort that this agency puts into the client's life. There is a lot of caring going on here.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the lives of many, many more people in NW Louisiana but providing more job finding assistance. The staff looks for all the resources it can in order to assist more folks. What a great method they use to help. Jobs for people! What more???

I had the opportunity to serve as a member of the Goodwill Industires of North Louisiana Board of Directors for six years. All I really knew about the organization was their ability to accpet donations of many varieties and place those donatiions for resale in their stores. I had been among those donors for many years, but had never visited their retail stores. Having served on several commuinity non-profit boards and working as an administrator in public higher education, I was unprepared for the depth of learning I was about to encounter along with a true education of how to run a true non-profit that is totally dependent upon it's own operations -- no government handouts. Without hesitation, I state that Goodwill Industries of NW Louisiana is the most efficient, effective and ethical non-profit I have ever been associated. Their staff is professional on every level, yet they also possess the compassion needed to help the people they truly serve -- challenged individuals who want to restart their lives and find a job. Being a part of Goodwill changed my life forever. Being part of a hands-on experience of helping others less fortunate than I introduced me to individuals with courage and pride, people seeking dignity through work and independence. Goodwill is so much more than operating a retail store and providing bargains to people on limited budgets -- which it does quite well. It truly changes people's lives through the power of education and jobs. The organization is a local and national treasure.
