Goodwill Southern California

Transforming lives through the power of work. Goodwill Southern California (GSC), one of the world’s leading non-profit brands, maintains a large network of businesses, community partners and government agencies that help match qualified talent with employers looking to hire. Last year, GSC placed thousands of individuals in employment throughout Southern California with a specialty in preparing and placing those with the most significant disabilities and vocational challenges, including veterans, the homeless, formerly incarcerated, mature workers and at-risk youth. Each year, GSC prepares and places thousands of individuals into sustainable employment through programs and services offered at three campuses: Career Resource Centers, WorkSource Centers, and Deaf, Youth and Veteran Employment Programs throughout Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino counties. GSC supports its mission with proceeds generated from 81 stores and 46 attended donation centers.
