SF Goodwill’s Commitment to People (and How It Affects You)
SF Goodwill is known to many people in the Bay Area as a great place to donate gently used clothes and household items. What you may not know, is that Goodwill also runs skills-based training programs, which enable thousands of people to get jobs.
Our job training services are open to everyone, and are one of the only resources for Bay Area citizens who are in the most need, and ready to transform their lives.
We believe that everyone has the right to support themselves and their families through the power of work, and everyone deserves a second chance. We are proud to say that over the past two years we have helped over 7,000 people begin their journey towards self-sufficiency.
Social Services in California cost billions of dollars a year, but Goodwill’s job training services work towards reducing this cost – through helping people become a net contributor to the community. Last year alone, our trained workers generated nearly $2.2 million in tax dollar - this is especially significant given that nearly 50% were former participants in our programs and services.
Help Us Raise $200,000 to Train and Employ more People in the Bay Area
It costs Goodwill $3,000 for every individual who goes through our training programs. Our target of $200,000 would enable 60 more people to build the skills they need to become job-ready. The ultimate goal for these men and women is full-time employment, and for many of them, this will mean they are able to stand on their feet and be fully self-sufficient for the first time in their lives. We feel that’s a pretty powerful story and hope you do too.
Please donate whatever you can to this important local initiative, or choose a Giving Level.
