Our Impact

Goodwill-Easter Seals Minnesota opens doors that may have appeared closed to help unlock the potential in each person we serve. Our work in connecting people to jobs every day is still happening and we’re seeing successes:

  • We transitioned many services to digital formats and are currently serving over 1,500 people.
  • Some of the people we serve need support in scanning applications and using digital tools. We just helped a woman access the energy assistance program to reduce her bills.
  • Many essential businesses still need trained staff. A woman we serve just landed a new job at Wells Fargo and we helped her look her best with gift cards to pick out new work clothing.

  • Our Work Incentives Connection team is celebrating a woman who is now independent of government benefits – she's working FT as a home health aide and making $16/hour.

If you or a loved one needs support, we have job training programs and career navigators to help open doors for you.  Start here.
