Goodwill of the Heartland’s mission is to advance the social and economic well being of people who experience barriers to independence.
Our founder, Edgar J. Helms, said that we should be dissatisfied with our work until every person in our community “has an opportunity to develop to his fullest usefulness and enjoy the maximum of abundant living.” We accomplish this vision by living our values, being involved and invested in our communities, and identifying and responding to emerging needs.
At Goodwill of the Heartland, we are committed to supporting people we serve by respecting and empowering them in all of our interactions. We are further committed to meeting the needs of our customers by providing products and services of the highest quality. The following “Building Pride” values support and sustain this commitment:
- Pursuit of excellence
- Respect for individuals
- Dedication to mission
Goodwill of the Heartland is committed to the highest level of quality and accountability in the services we provide to our community. That’s why we are fully accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and are members of The Iowa Association of Community Providers. We proudly display their seals in recognition of our compliance with their high standards.
