Goodwill-Trained Workers

Goodwill provides people with developmental disabilities the opportunity to achieve their highest levels of personal and economic independence. Since 1990 our Community-based day program has helped people gain valuable job skills and greater social and economic independence.

Your company likely has employment needs that Goodwill-trained workers, individually or in teams, could easily fill. The benefits are many:

  • Smart Economics:
    You’ll gain from a reliable work force, low wages, customized training and potential tax benefits
  • Good Social Stewardship:
    You’ll be rewarded by the tremendous pride and motivation Goodwill workers bring to their jobs
  • Strong Community Ties:
    You’ll enjoy the genuine satisfaction that comes with giving back to the community

When you hire workers from Goodwill of Orange County, you’re not only helping someone earn a sense of independence and pride. You’re also benefitting from one of the nation’s foremost training and employment services.

  • We assemble teams consisting of Goodwill trainees and one job coach
  • We train the employees, transport them to and from your job site
  • We manage their time, check their work, and interface with you regarding performance
  • The job coach is on-site at all times to be sure the job is done right
  • With our workforce of 425 workers, you never have to worry about someone calling in sick

Goodwill’s assistance with producing our customer start-up packets is extremely valuable. I would not hesitate to encourage other companies to consider Goodwill’s placement services.
