Where there is Goodwill, there is a way.

We transform lives through education, skills training, and employment opportunities, empowering individuals to reach their highest potential

Our commitment to education as the equalizer for career and individual success guides our work providing individual support, meaningful education and training and career services.

We believe every individual should be given the opportunity to achieve their highest level of self-sufficiency. Engaging like-minded partners, we will be widely accessible, provide relevant skills for in-demand jobs and ensure people receive the support they need to succeed along the way.

We aim to

  • Expand access to wrap-around support services and educational opportunities
  • Improve job quality outcomes by equipping career advancers with locally-relevant skills
  • Increase the numbers of people connected with good jobs through expanded employer relationships and retention support
  • Divert more goods from landfills through growth in retail

We commit to doing the right thing, even when no one is looking, fostering trust with each other, our customers, and the communities we serve.

We are a results-orientated organization, consistently taking ownership for our performance in all our decisions and actions while seizing opportunities to learn from successes and failures.

Empowerment:                                                                                                                                        We are committed to providing opportunities for Associates and clients to change their lives through education and skill development.

We treat each individual with dignity, empathy, and respect, ensuring that our decisions and actions consider the needs of others before our own.

We work together to help everyone succeed.

In 1902, Reverend Edgar J. Helms created an innovative system for collecting items from the community and selling them in Goodwill stores. Helms opened Goodwill’s doors to anyone with a “willingness to work” and became the pioneer of an organization that gave people hope, dignity, and independence by providing them with the means to earn a paycheck and support their families.

On April 25, 1965 Goodwill Southeast Georgia was incorporated under the leadership of Edward J. Bartlett. From a modest beginning, operating on $60,000 a year, in a borrowed building, with eight employees, Goodwill has grown into a multi-million dollar social enterprise. Today, funds generated by our retail stores, advanced manufacturing, and custodial operations employ over 500 associates and support our mission services.
