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.
