Our Culture

Ohio Valley Goodwill’s commitment to providing outstanding service has made it an organization of good standing in the Greater Cincinnati community for over 100 years; our culture reflects this high standard of excellence. Goodwill’s programs, services and management have earned it more than 100 local, regional and national awards. In 2019, the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) recognized Ohio Valley Goodwill’s dedication by awarding the organization a perfect audit outcome — marking six consecutive perfect triennial survey results. Only 3% of organizations nation-wide have ever achieved such extraordinary success.

Ohio Valley Goodwill has embraced these core values for 100+ years, and is committed to maintaining this standard of excellence in the years to come. When you donate, shop, or partner with our organization, your support will benefit the thousands of individuals we serve each year. No matter what the future holds, Ohio Valley Goodwill will continue to be worthy of your support and trust as we serve the needs of the Greater Cincinnati community.
