About Goodwill

about_goodwillAt Goodwill of Central Iowa we translate the good in the local community to programs and resources that change lives. While you might know us for our retail stores, we’re more than just a place for great deals – we provide job training programs that improve our community and inspire hope, one person at a time.

Goodwill’s retail division is comprised of a network of 18 retail stores and one outlet store in the 22 counties we serve in central Iowa. Profits from these retail stores, as well as donor contributions, fund Goodwill’s highly successful programs in workforce development. We help people find the tools to succeed at work and in life.

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for all individuals by providing skills training and helping people find jobs.

We believe by improving lives, we improve our communities.

Last year, Goodwill of Central Iowa provided services for more than 6,500 individuals and placed 1,109 into employment with businesses in central Iowa. We appreciate all the support central Iowans give Goodwill to help us fulfill our mission.
