Serving our mission

Second Début is operated by Goodwill-Easter Seals Minnesota to raise funds for our mission. Our boutique also includes space for employment and training services. Goodwill-Easter Seals is a vendor for Hennepin County's Minnesota Family Investment Program. Employment counselors for this program provide services at Second Début. They hold employment classes and assist individuals in their job search activities. 

Revenues from our boutique and Goodwill stores support education, workforce development and employment services for people with disabilities and other barriers to employment. In fact, our retail stores supply the majority of the agency's funding. Last year, we provided services to more than 12,000 Minnesotans.
