What is Ticket to Work?

Ticket to Work was established by the Social Security Administration (SSA) in order to give people with disabilities an opportunity to go back to work. Goodwill Keystone Area is approved by SSA to help you. We can help you with employment readiness, job searching and job placement!

At Goodwill, we don’t want to just help you find a job, we want to help you find your future! We believe that being active in the work force provides more than a paycheck - it builds confidence. We want you to be all you can be!
