Goodwill Industries of Rhode Island is one of the oldest, nonprofit vocational evaluation facilities in the country. Their history in Rhode Island dates back to 1863 when several young ladies from the founding families organized to help Civil War veterans.
Over the years the name has changed, but the mission has remained the same – Goodwill Industries of Rhode Island provides training, education, and other services to meet the needs of each individual and employers across the state resulting in employment and expanded economic opportunity for people with disabilities and other barriers to employment in order to enhance their capacity for independent living, increased quality of life and work.
Each year Goodwill Industries of Rhode Island assists approximately 2,000 individuals. Goodwill is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities.
