This year, Goodwill Dallas is striving to achieve an ambitious target of acquiring 500 donors to support its Workforce Development programs---Career Services and Disability Services. 

Goodwill's business works so people can. We are more than just your local thrift shop! As the largest not-for-profit job training and placement provider in the metroplex, Goodwill believes that work has the power to transform lives by building sustainable employment and self-sufficiency.

For 100 years, Goodwill has helped individuals with barriers to employment transform their lives through the power of jobs. The Donated Goods program provides direct employment through the recycling and reselling of material donations across their 18 stores while keeping millions of pounds of reusable items out of landfills. The program currently employs 700+ individuals and provides opportunities for development and multiple paths to success. The revenue generated is invested back into creating employment opportunities for individuals with barriers. The Workforce Development program utilizes a person-centered approach to assessments, education, job training and placement to build pathways to success and helps them achieve their goals. Additionally, Goodwill collaborates with local organizations and businesses to provide wraparound services and job placement opportunities within the community. Today, Goodwill Dallas serves eight counties across North Texas, including Dallas, Ellis, Kaufman, Navarro, Rains, Rockwall, and parts of Collin and Denton counties.


Goodwill Dallas's mission is changing lives, one job at a time.

As a social enterprise, Goodwill exists to help individuals with disabilities and barriers to employment recognize and reach their full potential and experience a life filled with purpose, accomplishment and self-sufficiency through the power of work.


On this upcoming North Texas Giving Day, Goodwill is striving to achieve an ambitious target of acquiring 500 donors to support its Workforce Development programs, including Career Services and Disability Services.

Each year, Goodwill serves over 1,000 North Texans facing employment barriers. With your support, we can empower individuals and families across communities, creating a ripple effect of positive change that will last for generations to come. Together we are changing lives, one job at a time!
