Goodwill Central Coast builds lives, families and communities by helping people with employment needs become successful, supported by innovative enterprises that preserve earth’s resources.
We believe that everyone has the right to work, but for many individuals the barriers to employment are too high to overcome alone. Barriers like homelessness, military service, single parenting, incarceration, addiction, and job displacement can define a person’s identity, even when they have so much more to offer.
Our goal is to ensure all of our community members know their worth and gain the skills and confidence to land a job that could turn their life around.
Each year we assist over 13,000 job seekers get back to work and reclaim financial and personal independence. We provide a positive learning environment that creates brighter futures through connecting people to meaningful work.
Goodwill Central Coast employs over 600 people in Santa Cruz, Monterey, and San Luis Obispo Counties.
