Mission

What we do.

Goodwill Industries helps people become independent through education and training leading to employment.

Why we do it.

Moving one person from unemployed to employed has a profound effect: the individual becomes more productive and self worth rises; the family is stabilized, resulting in a healthier, happier home environment; the community is strengthened. Now consider the impact of more than 11,000 people across the Upstate and Midlands of South Carolina placed in jobs—in a single year! In wages alone, that means more than $120 million back into our economy.

We call this transformation the power of work, and it’s at the heart of our mission as we provide support, education and training for people who, for many different reasons, come to us for help.
