Learn More About Our Mission

Goodwill San Antonio exists to serve people who face difficult circumstances, yet have the courage and commitment to better themselves. Whether it is a single parent trying to overcome life barriers for their children, a veteran attempting to transition from the military to a civilian employment office, or an at-risk student struggling to navigate next steps into adulthood, Goodwill is here to help create opportunity for those who are underserved.

Since 1945, our purpose has been centered on “Fighting Poverty and Creating Opportunity.” That remains our purpose today that drives our mission of “Helping Changing Lives Through the Power of Work.


We live out our mission internally by equipping our employees with the tools to succeed in both their personal and professional lives by:

  • Providing the basics of steady income and benefits
  • Affording advancement opportunities 
  • Offering intensive on-the-job training programs with a focus on 21st Century skills
  • Coaching employees in the management of everyday tasks helping them gain independence and forward mobility
  • Providing employment opportunities for those with significant disabilities or other life barriers



We live out our mission externally by offering programs and services to the community at large through:

  • Programs tailored to help at-risk young adults, ages 16 – 24, set and meet personal, educational, and career goals
  • Free employment counseling and assistance for those who are struggling to overcome life barriers, which preclude them from gainful employment
  • Affordable, short-term vocational training programs in high demand careers which provide opportunities for economic upward mobility
