About Us

At Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida, we help people with disabilities and other disadvantages in Southwest Florida become more independent. Our programs and services are designed to give a "hand up, not a handout."

We provide job training and placement, affordable housing, youth programs, and other needed services in Charlotte, Collier, Hendry/Glades, and Lee Counties.  Our programs are funded partially through our 25 Southwest Florida Retail & Donation Centers.
