Learn More About Goodwill

Goodwill of the Heartland is a diverse organization in terms of its people as well as its programs and services. While remaining part of Goodwill Industries International, local organizations are independently governed entities, nimble enough to access and address issues that matter most to their communities. We are an innovative and sustainable social enterprise that engages all aspects of the communities we serve through job training programs, workforce solutions and other community-based social services.

While most people are familiar with Goodwill Stores, our extensive menu of programs and services are the heart of our mission to help people reach their full potential through education, training and the power of work.
