Social Services Support and Resources

Goodwill’s founder, Edgar J. Helms, made famous the philosophy “a hand up, not a hand out.” Goodwill’s Social Service department has the ability to connect people in need with the right resources, as well as offer some direct services for emergency assistance through Goodwill. Goodwill's "Smiling G" voucher program is an example of a direct resource designed to help in a time of immediate and urgent need.

Vouchers that we issue can be used at any of the Goodwill stores listed here. Processing time is about three weeks.
