Goodwill employs over 250 people in its service area of Columbiana, Mahoning and Trumbull counties in Ohio, and Lawrence and Mercer counties in Pennsylvania. Goodwill pays wages of over $3,000,000 and its employees pay over $800,000 in taxes to assist the local economy.
Youngstown Area Goodwill Industries serves nearly 500 individuals annually in vocational services. With additional services to individuals who are visually impaired, and Radio Reading listeners, total people served each year are over 5,000.
Youngstown Area Goodwill Industries conducts its operations under a budget with total revenues of over $6 million. Many of the items donated generate revenue through store and salvage sales. The funds from these sales, combined with those from contract and rehab services, enables Goodwill to be 96% self-supporting.
Offering a full range of vocationally oriented services, Youngstown Area Goodwill Industries provides opportunities for persons with disabilities as well as individuals with disadvantaging conditions (e.g. poverty, homeless, etc.). Specially designed programs serve individuals who are visually impaired, and other groups with special needs.
Building for the Future:
Youngstown Area Goodwill Industries employs a population which would otherwise be largely reliant on public assistance. Our goal is to help them to prepare for a lifetime of independence.
