Ohio Valley Goodwill was pleased to be asked to join more than 30 other service provider agencies as an exhibitor for the 2016 Warren County Criminal Justice Board Symposium on January 20th. Held at the Warren County Board of Developmental Disabilities in Lebanon, the event was designed to provide state-of-the art training for professionals working on re-integration opportunities for the individuals they serve.
Goodwill Marketing Manager, Sharon Hannon, talked with the Symposium attendees about Ohio Valley Goodwill’s 100 year mission of service in the Greater Cincinnati community as well as its Employment Services programs. “As an employment and training organization celebrating a century of service, Goodwill works with thousands of people with disabilities and our nation’s veterans annually to help them find jobs in the community,” said Hannon. “We are glad that we are able to share our story with the residents of Warren County through the Symposium,” added Hannon.
Goodwill currently works in partnership with the Warren County Board of Developmental Disabilities to provide community-based work training opportunities for the individuals that the Board serves through its retail store locations in Lebanon as well as Loveland, Ohio.
Last year, Ohio Valley Goodwill served more than 3,400 people and helped more than 900 to get jobs in the Greater Cincinnati community. As the organization celebrates a century of service, it looks forward to continuing to meet the needs of Southwest Ohio citizens in their search for employment and personal success. Please note that everyone served by Ohio Valley Goodwill is sponsored or referred by a Goodwill partner organization which can include Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities, local County Boards of Developmental Disabilities or the Veterans Administration.
