Goodwill of North Georgia provides job training and employment services to people who are having trouble finding work, want to change careers, or start their own business. With the agency’s support, Goodwill program participants overcome employment hurdles caused by physical, emotional and developmental disabilities, limited job skills, poverty and other challenges. We are a stable, mature social enterprise with demonstrated success that is highly data-driven, with workforce development outcomes in the top 10% of the nation as measured by the National Benchmarking Project. We sell donated clothing, books, furniture and household goods in stores across North Georgia, and the proceeds help fund our mission. Since 1925, your donations have been helping to change lives.

When you donate, and when you shop, you help us put people to work.

Last fiscal year 2018, we helped 24,902 of our neighbors in North Georgia become employed and move toward self-sufficiency.
