Family of Nonprofits

The mission of Goodwill Sacramento Valley & Northern Nevada is to utilize Goodwill resources to help people with disadvantages achieve self-sufficiency.

Goodwill’s focus has always been job training and placement for people with disabilities and disadvantages, and vocational access remains our primary mission focus.  Realizing that job training and placement is only one piece of holistic and integrated service delivery, Goodwill Sacramento Valley & Northern Nevada is actively expanding its umbrella of services to include housing, food services, clothing and emergency assistance to those in need. Our common mission is helping people with disadvantages achieve self-sufficiency and improving the quality of lives in the communities we serve.

Through strategic alliances with local nonprofit organizations, Goodwill Sacramento Valley & Northern Nevada provides a more comprehensive continuum of care to those it serves.  Each nonprofit family member continues to provide the direct services for which they are known and respected. The nonprofit partners maintain their 501(c)(3) status and operate under their own budgets and Board of Directors.
