About Goodwill of Western & Northern Connecticut

The power of independence.

Goodwill believes that from self-sufficiency comes dignity. Our mission is to help people overcome barriers to independence, so they can lead full, rich, dignified lives.

Goodwill human services programs change lives. Some provide job training and coaching. Others help with daily living. And, some directly provide paying jobs along with the support it takes to succeed in them.

Founded in 1951, we are one of 165 regional Goodwill organizations throughout the US and Canada. With the support of our donors, customers and partners, we make a little good will go a long way!

Goodwill is a 100% nonprofit organization committed to giving people a “hand up.”
