Mission Statement

Goodwill of Colorado is dedicated to helping people reach their highest level of personal and economic independence.

Goodwill of Colorado’s mission is focused on breaking the physical, intellectual, financial and social barriers that keep individuals with disabilities and disadvantages from leading independent and purpose-filled lives. Goodwill accomplishes this mission through strategic and innovative employment and life skills programs that foster confidence and opportunity for those we serve. Goodwill operates over 20 diverse programs funded and administered through three core divisions - Operations & Sales; Workforce Development & Community Programs; and Business Contracts. These life-changing programs include social enterprises employing over 200 developmentally and economically challenged individuals.
