Goodwill Industries of the Southern Rivers is a community based organization committed to assisting individuals entering the workforce. They act as a bridge between potential workers and their employers, offering vital educational and job development services to help prepare individuals for reentry after incarceration. One of their primary goals is to assist those who may otherwise struggle to locate employment due to criminal conviction. They do this by providing employment opportunities within the organization, and by working with local employers to facilitate the hiring of formerly incarcerated individuals. When possible, Goodwill Industries will assist local employers with accessing information and government programs that help support the employment of individuals with criminal convictions. Additionally, Goodwill Industries provides essential educational assistance, such as support obtaining a GED or building literacy skills, and vital job skills training for high-need industry sectors.
