Refer a client for services

Thank you for considering a referral to Goodwill/Easter Seals Minnesota to help your client achieve their career goals. We offer job training, placement assistance and other ongoing support so anyone with a disability or other disadvantage can reach their goals and live independently. We believe everyone, regardless of background or barriers, has a right to participate in the world of work.

Who to refer

Many people think Goodwill/Easter Seals only helps people with disabilities. Although it's true that many of the individuals we serve have physical or mental health needs that present barriers to employment, our service group is much broader. We assist a wide variety of people with varying needs by providing individualized services to each of our participants.

If your client meets any of the criteria below, we may be able to provide services to assist them on the path to independence:  

  • A physical, mental or emotional disorder that keeps him or her from maintaining employment
  • Unable to find or keep a job due to a learning disability, such as dyslexia or ADD/ADHD
  • Recovering from addiction to drugs or alcohol
  • Receiving MFIP support or other public assistance
  • Recently laid off from work, is a dislocated worker or is currently unemployed or under-employed
  • Has any barrier to employment, wants to improve his or her income potential and is able to go through a skills training program (*Note if you would like to refer someone to our Skills Training Program, they must attend a skills training information session offered on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month at 1:45 p.m. at the Fairview Ave. N./University Ave. location in St. Paul.)
  • Is a young father (less than 35 years old) who does not have custody of his children but wants to support them and be involved in their lives
  • Does not speak English or speaks limited English
  • Is rehabilitating from a life-changing illness or accident that impacts the ability to work
  • Was recently released from prison

The process

If you are interested in referring a client to our programs or services, please fill out the appropriate referral form from the list on the right or call us at 651-379-5800.
