Review for Goodwill Easterseals Miami Valley, Dayton, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our family has been supporters of and donors to Goodwill Easterseals Miami Valley for many years. We appreciate that the organization offers more than 40 programs serving individuals with disabilities and disadvantages. The focus is always positive - on what can be accomplished and achieved, with individuals feeling well supported and cared for.

All of the programs center on "a hand up, not a hand out" which is empowering and self sustaining. Employment focused, evidenced based, and relationship centered, programs lift not only the individual, but also the family and the entire community.

The programs are strategic, make good use of community resources, and are not duplicative. Collaborations with other organizations are evident. Especially impressive was the way the organization pivoted during Covid, becoming stronger and more important to the community.

I appreciate Goodwill Easterseals and the important work being done in the Dayton area.

In addition to being a supporter and volunteer and shopper at the stores, it is an honor to be a Board member as well.
