Helping people and families achieve better lives through work and independence.
Introduction
Goodwill Industries of the Valleys, a United Way organization headquartered in Roanoke, serves 31 counties and 13 cities in the Shenandoah Valley, Central and Southwest Virginia. Its mission is to help people and families in our community achieve a better life through work and independence. In 2012 Goodwill served 89,759 individuals through its training and employment programs and place 2,894 in competitive community employment.

Whether a person needs a gentle push to help them along their road to independence, or a guiding hand through the entire process, Goodwill programs are designed to meet the needs of all who need help. Individuals eligible for assistance include those with mental and physical disabilities, at risk youth, disadvantaged adults on a low income, and income eligible seniors struggling to re-enter the workforce.

Goodwill operates 36 retail stores and 1 outlet store, which rely on the generosity of the communities for donations of clothing and household goods. All revenues from the stores support the mission of Goodwill Industries of the Valleys. Last year 90% of all revenues directly supported the training and employment programs.
