Goodwill of Western Missouri & Eastern Kansas

About This Organization

Goodwill empowers people with disadvantages and different abilities to earn and keep employment through individualized programs and services.  For nearly 125 years, Goodwill has provided services in and around Greater Kansas City.  On average 90¢ of every dollar Goodwill spends supports LOCAL programs and services like Quest Academy which gives individuals with barriers to employment a real-life work experience and skills to enter the workforce, GoodWORKS Career Resource Centers, which provide free career exploration assistance and is open to the public, and the Career Impact Program that pairs individuals with different abilities with career navigators and career coaches to succeed in the workplace.

Goodwill is a leader in sustainability, annually diverting 15 million pounds of computers, paper, clothing and textiles from area landfills, recovering the value through resale and recycle. As a member of Goodwill Industries International, we are a part of the world's largest and most successful network to provide employment and training services for people with different abilities. Goodwill empowers YOU to maximize your impact through employment, training, donating and recycling.

    Hi there. I ordered a paperback from your Amazon store and I received the wrong item. Due to Amazon's clunky process for getting in touch with sellers and my own impatience not only did you send the correct item but, I also received a refund. Please accept this gift in lieu of lost profits on the transaction. Keep up the good work. Thanks, Matt
