Throughout central and coastal Virginia, more than 36,000 individuals who want to be employed do not have jobs. Many face obstacles such as lack of education, skills, transportation or childcare. Others have disabilities, histories of incarceration, or limited work experience.
We need your help to break through these challenges and provide the training and support they need. Your investment in Goodwill empowers individuals, strengthens families and creates prosperous communities.
Take Kimberly Payne, who aspired to enter the medical profession. Finances were a hurdle, and when she was diagnosed with a rare blood cancer before she was set to begin classes, it seemed like all hope was lost.
“I wasn’t sure I could handle such an accelerated course. But with the support of my amazing instructor and the staff at Goodwill, I successfully passed my state boards and became a nationally certified Medical Assistant,” said Kimberly. “I am forever grateful for the dedication and support that Goodwill shows students in their programs.”
You are the leading light in the lives of people like Kimberly. Thanks to your support, Kimberly and hundreds of job seekers like her can enter high-demand fields that offer sustainable employment and growth opportunities. Your investment is critical to helping people bridge the skills gap to adapt to change in the world of work.
