Our family has donated and purchased from Cincinnati Goodwill stores since I was a child. It is an organization that continuously gives back to this community year after year. I have seen them go so far as to donate time, manpower and clothing to other nonprofits in their time of need. The staff at each store is friendly and helpful and they treat their employees with a great deal of respect. Goodwill will be part of this families giving and shopping habits for years to come.

The Ohio Valley Goodwill Care Program is the answer to our prayer. The staff and participants have such a positive attitude and the atmosphere is so peaceful, yet full of life. I am a worry free parent. The staff has such respect for each individual and is committed to helping them reach their full potential. I see my daughter, who is non-verbal and non-ambulatory really happy and doing more things independently. I really feel blessed to have found such a good program and love watching the wonderful changes in my daughter. There really are angels among us.

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
