Goodwill Industries of Denver
January 31, 2010

Goodwill Industries of Denver provides unsurpassed support to over 30,000 high risk students and adults in our community. This is a program that is designed to reverse the cycle of poverty in our community and it does! Goodwill assists at risk youth, struggling adults and individuals with disabilities. Goodwill provides career education curriculum in almost 30 high schools on the front range. A career focus at this early stage has proven that students are much more likely to be successful and self sufficient adults. Goodwill also provides career training and job placement for struggling adults so that they can get offwelfare and get a well paying job. Lastly, Goodwill provides employment opportunities, supported living services and day programs for individuals with disabilities. And through our donation programs, millions of pounds of goods were kept out of landfills. Goodwill Industries of Denver is a shining star of support to our community! I am a Board Member that is very proud to be associated with a program that does so much good for our community.
