Programs at Goodwill®
Goodwill Industries of Monocacy Valley is a nonprofit organization that believes in giving people “a hand up, not a hand out.” Since 1969, our mission has been to “Create, Hope, Jobs and Futures in our Community” by providing free job training and placement programs to employment for individuals with disabilities and disadvantages. Material goods donations play a critical role in our ability to fulfill our mission. Goodwill collects donated clothing and household goods, and then sells these items in our retail stores throughout Frederick and Carroll Counties.
Whether a person needs a gentle push to help them along their road to independence, or a guiding hand through the entire process, Goodwill programs are designed to meet the needs of job seekers who need help. The people who come through our doors are a diverse group, from single parents and recent immigrants to ex-offenders and adults who never finished high school. But everyone is looking for the same thing – a better life.
