I went to the interview at Albertson’s by myself. I got the job, and take the bus to work. I started out as a clerk and now I’m in the floral department, which I love. I even made Employee of the Month.”

Adam

Meet Adam,
The Face of Independence.

Our son, like most men, gains a strong sense of self-worth from his work. Goodwill’s Supported Employment program has enabled him to develop job skills, boost his self-confidence and move into an apartment! These steps has brought him closer to the goal that we have worked toward for his whole life — independence.
