What We Do
Goodwill helps persons with disabilities as well as people who are at an economic disadvantage, or may lack education or work
experience. Additionally, we provide job skill training to youth and seniors.
To support persons with disabilities and other barriers to independence in achieving their fullest potential as workers and as members of the broader community.
Goodwill believes that work is, and will continue to be, a fundamental building block of community.
Employment provides economic independence, as well as the secondary gains of preventing and minimizing other social problems.
It empowers each person to develop a broader role within the community.
We believe in giving a hand up, not a hand out.
A community where the talents and value of all people are celebrated.
The vision of Goodwill Keystone Area continues to be empowering those we serve to reach their fullest potential as workers and as members
of the broader community. We assist individuals in overcoming employment barriers, including welfare dependency, illiteracy
and disabilities, and introduce them to the power of earning a paycheck.
In support of the mission and to provide training opportunities, Goodwill collects and sells donated items in more than 35 stores in 22
central and southeastern Pennsylvania counties. The counties in Goodwill Keystone Area's territory are: Adams, Berks, Bucks, Chester, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Juniata, Lancaster, Lebanon, Lehigh, Lycoming, Mifflin, Montgomery, Montour, Northampton, Northumberland, Perry, Schuylkill, Snyder, Union and York.
