The mission of Goodwill Industries of Santa Cruz, Monterey and San Luis Obispo Counties, is to provide education, employment and job training services to people with barriers to employment. We support these services through the collection and sale of clothing and household items in such a manner as to encourage reuse/recycling of these material resources thereby creating employment that benefits and protects the environment.
Goodwill Industries of Santa Cruz, Monterey and San Luis Obispo Counties was established in 1928 in the City of Santa Cruz as part of the San Francisco Goodwill organization. In 1953 we became an independent Goodwill organization with our own local Board of Directors. Today the organization operates 48 sites including 15 stores, 25 Attended Donation Centers, five donation processing centers and five job training facilities. We employ more than 370 people including employment training professionals, sales personnel, attended donation center attendants, warehouse and distribution workers and administrators. We are an equal opportunity employer and an advocate for the Americans with Disabilities Act. Here is additional background information.
