Criminal? Felon? Get a Job at Goodwill

One often overlooked place that a criminal can find employment is at the local Goodwill store.

More than 170,000 people obtained meaningful employment in 2010 through their participation in Goodwill programs. These people went on to earn over $2.7 billion in salaries and wages, and contributed to their communities as productive, tax-paying citizens.

Goodwills meet the diverse needs of people, including youth, seniors, veterans, immigrants, and people with disabilities, criminal backgrounds and other specialized needs.

Goodwill is one of those companies that is willing to give people a second chance. By shopping at Goodwill, you help “complete the circle”, supporting the company that supports criminal offenders and people from all backgrounds.
