GOODWILL INDUSTRIES OF DENVER ANNUAL IMPACT REPORT 2017-2018


Dear friends of Goodwill,

100 is certainly a number to be celebrated, but as we look forward to the next century of changing lives, we’re focused on the number ONE. One donation. One student’s scholarship interview. One mother’s ability to provide for her family. One individual’s sense of dignity. All of these “ones” combine into a tremendous force for good.

As Goodwill Industries of Denver celebrates a century of service in Colorado, I am delighted to share our most recent outcomes with you. Over the last 100 years, Goodwill’s mission has evolved with the changing needs of the community, while holding firm the ideal that the power of work has the profound ability to change lives. Generations of Coloradans have received support through Goodwill’s programs, made possible only through the generous support of our community.

Every part of our mission plays a critical role in continuing Goodwill’s legacy of helping people who face serious barriers to success. In the 2017–2018 program year, you helped Goodwill serve 23,069 Coloradans in need.

You’ll learn more about Goodwill’s programs and their impact, throughout this report. On behalf of our entire team of dedicated staff and volunteers, I’d like to extend my gratitude for your continued support. Sincerely,

Karla Grazier, Goodwill Industries of Denver

Melissa Briggs was a prominent Methodist deaconess who founded the Denver chapter of Goodwill in 1918. She was often seen riding her bicycle around town, collecting donations and discarded items. These items were then cleaned, repaired, and given to people in need.

GOODWILL’S MISSION

A century later, Melissa’s spirit of helping others is present throughout the Goodwill community. Our donors, shoppers, program participants, and employees all embody Goodwill’s mission—helping to usher in the next 100 years of changing lives.

Goodwill provides education, career development, and employment opportunities to help Coloradans in need achieve self-sufficiency, dignity, and hope through the Power of Work.

COMMUNITY

RETAIL

Goodwill helps individuals with disabilities access their community, find meaningful work, and achieve selfsufficiency through specialized training and employment.

With locations across the Front Range, Goodwill’s retail operations exist to create opportunities for people in need within our community.

Donna Helfrich and Madisyn Higgins were both told at different stages in their lives that they may never see a day when they would live and work independently, but they paid that no heed! Thanks in part to their own determination, friendship, and their Goodwill Job Coach; Madisyn and Donna both live on their own and are rockstar employees at the Denver Zoo!
