Every day, Goodwill changes lives in southeast Iowa and the Quad City Area. We touch the lives of thousands of people each year as we advance the social and economic well-being of people who experience barriers to independence.
Our Goodwill roots are deep and began in Boston more than 100 years ago as Iowa native Edgar J. Helms introduced the philosophy of “a hand up, not charity.” For 50 years we have been at home in southeastern Iowa and western Illinois, offering a leg up through jobs, training and employment to those who are working toward greater levels of independence.
Today, we serve thousands of individuals through a variety of basic and intensive services in 16 Iowa counties and 3 Illinois counties. We are governed by a board of directors representative of our service areas and managed by our Senior Leadership Team.
Feel free to look over our annual report and our Form 990. Keep up with us in our newsroom or by following us on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube and Flickr. If you would like to support Goodwill programs in Southeastern Iowa and Western Illinois, you can donate now. Contact Us
