Morgan Memorial Goodwill Industries "Not a charity, but a chance" The mission of Goodwill Industries is to provide exemplary job training and related services to help individuals with disabilities and other barriers to self sufficiency to achieve independence and dignity through work.
Morgan Memorial Goodwill Industries was established in Boston's South End in 1895 by Reverend Edgar J. Helms and is the founding organization of a worldwide network of 216 Goodwill affiliates. Over the years, the range of Goodwill's good work has broadened significantly. Today, it serves individuals who face a variety of barriers to employment, including physical and/or mental disabilities, illiteracy, homelessness, inadequate education, and welfare dependency. Through our training and work programs, youth services, and retail enterprises, Goodwill helps to equip individuals with the tools necessary to meet new challenges and create more rewarding and independent lives.
Goodwill is one of the largest employers of people with disabilities in New England.
