Goodwill SOLAC was founded in 1929 and since then we have collected and resold donated clothing and household goods to fund programs and services designed to help people with barriers to employment achieve economic and personal independence. People like John, who transitioned off welfare; Mary, who was once a displaced homemaker needing new skills to re-enter the workforce; or Simone, who lived on the streets and spent time in jail. All are now working thanks to your donations which have funded Goodwill’s education and training programs.
In fact, the majority of our revenue comes from the sale of donated goods at our stores located throughout communities in Southern Los Angeles County. Goodwill stores are not only our major source of funding, but also provide jobs to those with little or no work experience, as they adjust to the demands of the workplace.
Our skills training, education, job preparation and placement programs build lives, families and communities—one job at a time. Placing individuals in productive and competitive employment fills them with the value, joy and dignity of a paycheck. We believe putting people to work not only benefits the individual, but also the communities’ economic vitality as well, through taxes, spending power, real estate values, quality of life, and relief to social services and welfare systems.
