In America, millions of people face barriers to finding employment. Barriers to work opportunities can include factors such as a lack of training or education, limited access to job search resources, or a lack of career-building skills. For people with disabilities, finding job opportunities and securing meaningful employment can be particularly difficult.
That’s why, for more than 100 years, Ohio Valley Goodwill has committed to putting people to work. Since 1916, Ohio Valley Goodwill has provided vocational services for people with disabilities and our nation’s veterans in the Greater Cincinnati community. Driven to help those in need, our mission is to enhance others’ dignity and quality of life by providing employment and job skills training services.
As a member of Goodwill Industries International, we are a part of the world’s largest and most successful network providing employment and training services for people with disabilities and other barriers to employment. We strive to strengthen local communities, eliminate barriers to opportunity, and help people reach their full potential through learning and the power of work.
At Ohio Valley Goodwill, we offer a wide array of services and programs to assist individuals in finding and obtaining employment. We’re pleased to provide skills training, career planning, job placement, coaching support, worksite support services and other related services designed to help individuals with disabilities and veterans achieve their vocational goals. Through work, the individuals served by Goodwill receive more than a paycheck; they gain independence and a sense of personal fulfillment.
