Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania is a human service agency and network of not-for-profit businesses whose mission is to help people with special needs overcome barriers to employment and enjoy the dignity and benefits of work and improved quality of life. Under a franchise-like agreement with Goodwill Industries International, we serve eight counties in southwestern Pennsylvania (Allegheny, Armstrong, Butler, Beaver, Fayette, Greene, Washington and Westmoreland) and nine counties in north central West Virginia (Barbour, Harrison, Lewis, Marion, Monongalia, Preston, Randolph, Taylor and Upshur). With over 1,000 employees and annual revenues of nearly $50 million, our agency ranks as one of the largest Goodwill organizations in the U.S. What We Do Goodwill SWPA provides a broad array of employment-related education and workforce development programs and services for people with physical and mental disabilities and other special needs. As one of the largest and most diverse social and human service organizations in the region, Goodwill serves thousands of people each year. Additionally, Goodwill helps thousands of individuals find jobs annually. Our employment services programs are accredited by CARF, an independent, non-profit accrediting body whose official certification is a mark of distinction among agencies that provide such services. We have more than 30 stores and several other businesses to help to support our programs and to provide training and employment opportunities for clients. Revenues from Goodwill stores – along with income from our other business units, salvage sales, contract work, rehabilitation grants and fees, and public support – go directly to job-training services and equipment needed by people with disabilities and disadvantages. An average of over 90% of all revenue raised by Goodwill supports our job-training and employment programs.
