Goodwill Industries provides educational assistance programs to help improve lives and increase employment and income for persons with disabilities. Job coaches assist with preparations for seeking employment, and completion of educational programs. Vocational training programs, certification programs and GED completion programs are available and accessible to ESL and special education students. Goodwill provides financial assistance with transportation and childcare vouchers, as well as tuition assistance for ACC classes.
For almost six decades, Goodwill Central Texas has relentlessly focused on a single goal:empowering people to work.
The extremely high levels of unemployment among segments of our community are unacceptable, specifically for those people who have disabilities, lack education, have criminal backgrounds, or are facing homelessness. Goodwill believes everyone matters, and that advancing business and valuing our earth leads to stronger communities where individuals and families thrive.
More than 100,000 Central Texans are unable to find stable employment on their own. Goodwill's education and job training, retail stores and business services, and community partnerships enable them do whatever it takes to transform lives through the power of work.
