Mission: Seattle Goodwill provides quality, effective employment training, and basic education to individuals experiencing significant barriers to economic opportunity.
Because Jobs Change Lives.
Goodwill is a non-profit organization that has been serving north Puget Sound for over 90 years. They operate 24 retail thrift stores in this region. Merchandise for their stores comes from generous donations of quality, new or reusable items from the public. Sales of these donations and financial contributions from individuals, corporations, and foundations support Goodwill's free job training and education programs. Each year these programs help thousands of individuals get the skills they need to become economically self-sufficient through work.
