Goodwill is a good place. Goodwill helps me with trying to get a job in the community. Goodwill also makes me feel better about myself because I can come to work and make money. There are a lot of different types of jobs that I can do here. I can also make good friends at Goodwill.

I really think that Goodwill is great place is great place for individuals with disabilities to obtain vocational rehabilitation services. I have been here 4 years and it has really strengthened me as a person, growing in maturity and making personal contributions to society through work. Through my work with Goodwill's Consumer Advisory Committee (CAC) I have been able to become a stronger self-advocate, and have even had the opportunity to become an active member of the Advocacy Leadership Network with Hamilton County Developmental Disability Services.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Participating in advocacy activities with Goodwill for Hamilton County Developmental Disability Services' 2009 Tax Levy Campaign, and have done outreach to local high schools, as well as co-hosting Goodwill's 2009 Advocacy and Leadership Summit. In 2010 I participated in an assessment with Goodwill to learn about clerical and customer service jobs and am looking forward to developing my skills in those areas.

I really can't think of anything I would like to change, but I would like to see Goodwill continue to work with local countiy agencies to ensure that every individual served would be able to obtain employment and vocational services when they want them!

I have worked with Ohio Valley Goodwill Industries as both the President of the local Chamber of Commerce where it is located, as well as a community business partner through the college where I am a Director. Ohio Valley Goodwill Industries serves as an exemplary leader in partnering with the community through numerous business functions to not only promote and advocate for the customers it serves, but to support the business community it serves and coexists with. Additionally, Ohio Valley Goodwill Industries has provided numerous opportunities to help train and employ students and graduates of my college, ensuring well-trained professionals to fill the local workforce. Every need I have brought to George Palmer and Sharon Hannon has been unequivocally met and exceeded.

The Great!

OHIO VALLEY GOODWILL IS A GREAT ORGANIZATION-- I HAVE HAD THE EXPERIENCE OF BEING INVOLVED WITH THEM THRU THEIR REHABILITATION PROGRAM FOR DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITY PERSONS. THEIR STAFF ARE VERY FRIENDLY WARM & CARING PEOPLE IN THEIR DEALINGS WITH THESE INDIVIDUALS . THEY MAKE SURE THESE DEVELOPMENTAL DISABLED PEOPLE HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY AND MEANS TO JOIN IN THE WORKPLACE AND TO JOIN IN COMMUNITY PROJECTS. THEY HELP THEM FEEL THEY HAVE A PURPOSE IN LIFE AND CAN ENJOY BEING A PART OF SOCIETY. THEY NOT ONLY ENJOY WORKING BUT ALSO ENJOY BEING ABLE TO SOCIALIZE WITH EVERYONE AS AN EQUAL INDIVIDUAL IF IT HAD NOT BEEN FOR THEM MY DAUGHTER WOULD HAVE LOST HER JOB. THEY STEPPED IN AND PROVIDED THE HELP AND ASSISTANCE WE NEEDED. THEY HAVE HELPED HER IN SO MANY WAYS GIVING HER THE JOY OF BEING ABLE TO WORK AND SELF WORTH AND HAPPINESS TO BE PART OF THE WORK FORCE AGAIN THEY ARE A GREAT ORGANIZATION AND WE ARE PROUD OF BEING ASSOCIATED WITH THEM BARB BROWN

Over the past several years, I have worked very closely with Goodwill Industries in Springdale, Ohio. The staff consistently show a professional attitude toward working with individuals with developmental delays, ensuring that these individuals are afforded the opportunity to participate in their community, just like everyone else. Goodwill went above and beyond the typical transition to work programs, to provide the Goodwill CARE program, which allows individuals with developmental delays to participate in not only work training, but in social and rec/leisure skills, as well. The Goodwill Springdale is always open to new and innovative ideas for programs for individuals with disabilities

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen several graduating seniors with developmental delays and behavior issues become successful adults through their programming.

I am the Shelter Case Manager with Interfaith Hospitality Network of Greater Cincinnati. I have for many years referred families to the different services that the Ohio Goodwill provides. The clients I've referred have always been met by professionals who greet them with kindness and a knoweledge of resources within Goodwill but other community resources as well. They offer a wide range of services which include Veteran services, housing, employment assistance, disabilities services and so many more. Without the partnership we have with the Ohio Goodwill the families would have a much more difficult time reaching their goals of employment and housing. The empolyee's that I've worked with over the year's have been very approachable and willing to partner to meet the needs of the people we both are serving.

Ohio Valley Goodwill has helped numerous people that have been referred to the organization. I work with the homeless population and the veterans program at Goodwill has been able to assist many of my veteran clients with job search and other assistance. The staff in the Kentucky office are knowledgable and very nice. There are not many resources for the homeless on this side of the river and my clients and I are both grateful for all Goodwill's work.
