Goodwill of Orange County

OUR STORY:

2019 marks Goodwill of Orange County’s 95th year serving our great community. That’s 95 years of changing lives, providing pathways to independence, and creating a brighter future for Orange County. We are proud of our legacy and proud to be transparent and accountable stewards of your donations.

Goodwill of Orange County provides communication, technology, education, training and employment services to people with disabilities and other barriers to employment in our community. We provide this through a broad spectrum of programs including: Greenberg Gross Career Center offers classes where individuals can learn vocational skills and improve job readiness; Community Based Services focuses on vocational placement for people with developmental disabilities; Supported Employment provides job readiness and employment services to people with developmental disabilities; Employment Works provides individualized job placement and job retention services to adults living with a mental health diagnosis; and the Tierney Center for Veteran Services supports veterans transitioning from military to civilian life. At Goodwill’s Assistive Technology Exchange Center (ATEC), an expert staff of speech pathologists and rehabilitation engineers evaluate individuals, develop creative strategies, and provide access to state-of-the art assistive technology equipment that enables and empowers our participants, both adults and children, to communicate at home, school and work. At Goodwill’s Rogers A. Severson Fitness & Technology Center, a staff of knowledgeable and dedicated personal trainers focus on providing one-on-one services to people with disabilities or chronic illness to achieve their highest level of physical independence in a uniquely supported community environment. The center is the only one of its kind in Orange County.
