THANK YOU for considering a donation so we can continue serving those most vulnerable in our community! Your DONATION today will help fund essential employment and training programs that are critical to our community in this time of increased economic uncertainty. For more information about these programs, please scroll down.
For the last 77 years, Goodwill San Antonio has been proud to serve our community as a second-chance employer. Our Anniversary year (2020) turned out to be the toughest year on record, but we pulled through with your friendship and support.
Critical Needs for Our Community
Good Careers Academy
Our Good Careers Academy provides vocational skills training in the medical field and other high-demand occupations. Students participate in classroom instruction and receive hand-on experience while adhering to occupancy guidelines and maintaining social distancing. Programs which support traditionally high-demand fields (like our Certified Nurse's Aide program) are even more crucial during this unprecedented medical event for those in our community who are now in need of employment in high demand occupations.
Good Career Centers
Many in our community, especially hourly and low-income individuals, are in need of support to help them find life-sustaining work. Through career coaching, resume writing, mock interview, and connection to hiring employers, our Good Careers Center staff is ready to offer FREE guidance to help those in need find meaningful work crucial to the financial stability of their families.
We recognize the critical nature of a stable income and so have created the Workforce Relief Fund to ensure the health and well-being of over 1,800 team members and their families. Goodwill continues to offer life skills coaching sessions to all of our employees to help address any personal or professional barriers they face. We know our life skills coaches are trained and ready to help our employees navigate these changing times.
Unlike many nonprofits who rely on philanthropic donations to support their programs, our critical community services are traditionally funded through our Retail and Business Service operations, which make up 96% of our budget. Although our stores have reopened after the COVID-19 crisis, we continue to feel the effects from the last few years.
We are ready to get back to doing GOOD WORK for our community and invite you to join our efforts by making a monetary donation today. Together, we can ensure that these essential programs are available to those who need them most!
