Our Impact

Goodwill-Easter Seals Minnesota opens doors that may have appeared closed to help unlock the potential in each person we serve. 

Every year, we serve over 4,500 unemployed and low-wage earners who are seeking equitable career access and opportunity.

  • We support people seeking career growth and stability with digital literacy skills, resume refinement and free, job-specific
    training like construction or IT to help people find meaningful work.
  • People like Adrian are finding new career paths to gain independence and provide family support.

  • Our participants experience an average annual increase in earnings of $26,452 and 82% are employed after six months. Dislocated worker participants experience an average annual wage increase of $52,739.

We believe the power of work stabilizes families in our community and fosters a more inclusive workforce.​​​​​​​ If you or a loved one needs support, we have job training programs and career navigators to help open doors to brighter futures.  Start here.
