Not Charity But A Chance
Goodwill Industries of Northern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan is all about people working.
We are the Upper Peninsula and Northern Wisconsin’s non-profit provider of education, training, and career services for any person who wants meaningful employment.
We believe that work has the power to transform lives by building self-confidence, independence, creativity, trust and friendships.
GOODWILL – OUR HISTORY:
Dr. Helms described Goodwill Industries as an “industrial program as well as a social service enterprise…a provider of employment, training and rehabilitation for people of limited employability, and a source of temporary assistance for individuals whose resources were depleted.”
Even with a laudable history and record of accomplishment, Goodwill won’t be satisfied when so many people still need our services. Through our 21st Century Initiative, we aim to improve the economic self-sufficiency of 20 million people and their families by 2020. Times have changed, but Helms’ vision remains constant. “We have courage and are unafraid. With the prayerful cooperation of millions of our bag contributors and of our workers, we will press on till the curse of poverty and exploitation is banished from mankind.”
