As a leader in employment services for nearly 100 years, Goodwill-Easter Seals Minnesota provides customized support to eliminate barriers to work and independence. The most common barriers our participants cite are low income, disabilities, criminal histories and lack of a high school diploma/GED.
Our holistic approach ranges from assistance with interview clothing to industry-specific job training programs and we place four people in the workplace every day.
To see our mission in motion, watch inspirational stories about the people we serve:
Jennifer is one of only five women in Minnesota who are piledrivers. Find out how we helped her overcome the barriers she faced and start her new career.
Let go from her job just days before Christmas, Nicole was worried how she would provide a Christmas for her children and faced eviction from her home. Then Goodwill-Easter Seals helped her land a permanent, full-time job.
"Goodwill-Easter Seals took me from being in someone in need of help, to being in a position where I can help other people. See our mission in motion in Danielle's story.
Many people think Goodwill-Easter Seals only helps people with disabilities, yet the barriers people face also include things like low income and criminal histories. We assist a wide variety of people with varying needs through a holistic approach that ranges from assistance with interview clothing to industry-specific job training programs.
In addition to workforce development, Goodwill has been "green" for nearly 100 years by reusing items that would otherwise end up in landfills. Did you know?
