Serving as the cornerstone of Goodwill’s mission to put people to work, Career Development Services (CDS) has evolved to provide training, programs and work opportunities for individuals with a variety of employment needs. By evaluating individual employment barriers, as well as overall needs of employers, we have developed a comprehensive training package coupled with supportive services and community resources that ensure a holistic wraparound service model. The results are evident from our growth over the past two years. We saw a 19% increase from the previous year with 15,861 job seekers served in the five county territory. In addition, 2,868 individuals reported getting back into the workforce resulting in $47.3 million dollars earning potential added to the local economy.
