Our Why

Hoosiers lack a high school diploma.2

After 90 years of experience employing Hoosiers, Goodwill of Central & Southern Indiana identified a few common barriers that often limit one’s job prospects—a disability, criminal history or low educational attainment.

Thanks to the help of donors, shoppers and supporters like you, Goodwill exited 2019 having built a solid foundation that is empowering people to change their lives. As we now adjust to the unprecedented challenges of a global pandemic, the importance of our core mission to the communities we serve is clear. The effects of COVID-19 on the economy and jobs in particular has been devastating to the people we serve—many of whom struggled with poverty before the pandemic. With our holistic approach to success, Goodwill is uniquely prepared to serve Hoosiers who are navigating this new reality. One of the best antidotes to poverty is a job, which is why employment is one of the primary pillars of our mission. Of the Hoosiers we directly employed in 2019, nearly 60% had an employment barrier, like a disability, criminal history or limited education. We also focus on professional development and barrier removal, with the goal of helping people expand the opportunities available to them. There are 460,000 workingage Hoosiers who do not have a high school diploma, significantly limiting their job prospects, which is why education is also an important pillar of our mission. Since poverty is often multigenerational, ensuring babies get the best possible start in life is why health is the third pillar of Goodwill’s mission—specifically, maternal-child health. Although Indiana’s infant mortality rate has improved in recent years, it remains one of the highest in the nation, disproportionately impacting poor families.

As you’ll see in the following pages of this Annual Report, people connect with Goodwill in many different ways, but they often end up using multiple supports and services, which is an intentional feature of our social services model. We call these ‘wraparound services,’ and we vigorously support those who are eager to take advantage of these opportunities.

With the help and advocacy of donors, shoppers and supporters like you, Goodwill continues to empower individuals across central and southern Indiana to change their lives, so thanks for all you do.

President's Message

I’m proud of what we’ve been able to achieve together, and once you see how your generosity is supporting people in your community, I think you will be proud too. But challenges remain, and I look forward to joining with you to empower even more people to increase their independence and reach their potential. Gratefully,

Kent A. Kramer President and CEO Goodwill of Central & Southern Indiana

When Jesse Hendrickson first walked into Goodwill for his court-ordered community service in 2016, he was homeless and recovering from a decade-long drug addiction that had isolated him from his family. “I was prescribed narcotics to deal with the pain I experienced from recurring kidney stones,” Jesse explained. “I became addicted and developed a tolerance, eventually moving on to heroin.” Jesse was arrested 24 times, spending most of his adult life incarcerated. After becoming a danger to his family, his parents asked him to leave their home. “I have great parents. My problems were the result of choices I made,” Jesse emphasized. “I received a wake-up call when I overdosed while driving my car and nearly died. I was arrested soon after.”

He credits the community service at Goodwill, in part, for keeping him busy as he struggled to abstain from drugs, but he mostly credits his wife, Aubrey Kidd, whom he met at Goodwill. Jesse did such a great job volunteering that he was quickly hired and immediately moved up the ranks. He was promoted to Site Leader in 2018, just two-and-ahalf years after he first walked into Goodwill. “Jesse took a store that was underperforming and completely turned it around,” said Jared Rains, Regional Director at Goodwill. “He’s also intentional about extending opportunities to other people with barriers.” Jesse recently celebrated four years of sobriety and the birth of his second child. The couple is enrolled in Goodwill’s

Nurse-Family Partnership® program, which paired them with a nurse home visitor who has been working with them for more than two years. Jesse has also repaired his relationship with his parents, who are excited to be grandparents again.

“I went from nothing to having a beautiful family and a roof over my head, and it is because of the amazing people at Goodwill,” Jesse said. “I will never give up again because of the chance Goodwill gave me.”

Expanding Mission Services in Bloomington In summer 2019, Goodwill Commercial Services, which provides contract manufacturing and packaging solutions, opened its second production facility, in Bloomington. The facility currently employs 28 people— 89% of whom have an employment barrier, like a disability, criminal history or lack of a high school diploma—with plans to add another 15 jobs over the next 12 months. The facility’s first customer was Bloomingtonbased Cook Medical, a leading

medical device manufacturer that employs more than 12,000 people worldwide. “It gives us an asset other communities don’t have,” said Pete Yonkman, President of Cook Medical. “It’s good business that’s good for the community.” In addition to jobs, the new facility offers Goodwill’s New Beginnings, a re-entry program for Hoosiers who were recently incarcerated. The 6-month program, which continues to be

offered in Indianapolis as well, focuses on the development of technical and soft skills through a paid internship. Participants work 40 hours a week and are taught supplementary skills, including budgeting, credit management and more. Once equipped with the skills needed to build a steady employment history, individuals are hired full-time at Goodwill or offered assistance to acquire employment elsewhere.

“Having people there who motivate you, believe in you and lift you up when you stumble is the most valuable part of the program.” — Christopher Holifield, a New Beginnings graduate.


ANNUAL REPORT 2019 // 2020

Supporting Communities Through Strong Partnerships In summer 2019, Goodwill’s Excel Center® partnered with Tom Wood and Ford Motor Company to implement an Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification program at our Shadeland and University Heights locations. Tom Woods’ sponsorship of The Excel Center provides students with access to the curriculum at no cost; in return, Tom Wood has access to a pipeline of qualified service technicians—each with a path to a well-paying career. There are currently three students who have completed the ASE certification program and been hired as service technicians at Tom Wood, including Isaac Perez, who is now working on heavy duty

diesel trucks and learning a new specialty under the mentorship of a senior Ford Certified Master Technician. Isaac plans to continue his career at Tom Wood with the goal of eventually earning the Ford Master Technician Certification. "If it wasn't for the partnership between Goodwill and Tom Wood, I wouldn't be here today, in a job that I enjoy,” Isaac said. Overall, Tom Wood has hired 11 people through Goodwill into a variety of positions. If your company is interested in partnering with Goodwill, contact Kris Deckard at kdeckard@goodwillindy.org or 317.524.4297.

New Store Openings

Riverview Apartments Now Leasing

In fall 2019, Goodwill opened its first retail outlet in southern Indiana at 1212 Applegate Lane in Clarksville and its second retail store in New Albany at 3400 Grant Line Road. These new stores are part of Goodwill’s commitment to grow its southern Indiana business and employment opportunities following the 2017 merger of the formerly separate Clarksville-based and Indianapolis-based Goodwill agencies.

Riverview Apartments, a brand new workforce housing development along the White River overlooking the Indianapolis skyline, is now leasing to middleincome earners in the $33,600$67,200 range, with rents below

Goodwill Pioneers New Education Model In 2004, we opened our first charter high school for traditional-age students, quickly learning that students faced their own unique set of challenges. Today, Indianapolis Metropolitan High School is a bestfit school for students experiencing circumstances that may present a barrier to education, including teen pregnancy or parenting, homelessness, involvement with the foster care or criminal justice system and more. Educating up to 270 traditional-age students, Indy

Met places an emphasis on ensuring students enroll in college or enter into a career that offers a higher wage post-graduation.

Graduation rates at Indy Met have never been higher, with 83% earning a diploma last school year.

Children’s Learning Center by Goodwill Gets an Upgrade

Empowering Young People Indianapolis Metropolitan High School’s unique model was made to support students like Zoey Lewis. Zoey lived with relatives in both West Virginia and Ohio before moving to Indianapolis to live with her older sister. Zoey had already attended two high schools when she enrolled as a sophomore at Indy Met. She has since thrived in all of her academic and extracurricular activities.

“What I like about Indy Met is it’s small, which allows you to connect with your teachers and learn more,“ Zoey said. Zoey helped found Puma Sips, a student-run cafe at Indy Met,

where she is now the CEO. She is also captain of the girls’ volleyball, basketball and track teams and a member of the student council. Viewed as a role model by her peers, Zoey enjoys tutoring and helping others succeed. “I know how it is to struggle with school work, and sometimes it’s easier for students to ask a peer they trust for help rather than a teacher,” Zoey said. She received a full scholarship to Indiana University where she will study criminal justice. She also plans to go to law school, with the goal of one day becoming a judge. “I want to be a lawyer so that I’m able to make changes from inside of the criminal justice system,” Zoey said. 9

A Leader in Adult Education There are 460,000 working-age Hoosiers who lack a high school diploma. Prior to The Excel Center, Goodwill’s free high school for adults, there were few options for people like Jacob Barrett who wanted to earn one. While attending the Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired, Jacob pursued a life skills path that focused on achieving independence and earned a Certificate of Completion. In addition to his visual impairment, Jacob is completely deaf, requiring double-cochlear implants to hear. He is also on the autism spectrum, but he dreamed of earning a high school diploma. “I knew I would have more job opportunities with a diploma,” Jacob said. 10

He also knew he needed additional support to be successful, which is why he was one of the first students to enroll at The Excel Center when the Shelbyville location opened in 2016. He learned about the school through his job at the local Goodwill retail store. “I was working and heard an advertisement for The Excel Center over the store’s speaker,” Jacob said. He continued to work part-time at Goodwill during the day and served as a representative of the Boys and Girls Club as well as the Special Olympics. The Excel Center’s flexible schedule allowed him to attend classes in the evening. His biggest hurdle was the end-ofcourse assessment for math. Jacob persisted, passing the exam on his fourth attempt.

According to the National Federation of The Blind, only 31% of adults in the United States with visual impairments have attained a high school diploma or GED. In 2018, Jacob became one of them, by earning a high school diploma— overcoming numerous challenges to do so. In addition, he earned an IT Fundamentals certification and is now pursuing a CompTIA A+ certification at Ivy Tech. He has also been promoted to full-time at Goodwill.

“I never imagined I would go to college; now I’m thinking about a career as an IT Support Specialist,” Jacob said.

We have three more locations planned for Columbus, Marion and

another in Marion County. The school recently received a grant from the Lumina Foundation to aid in the national expansion of its unique education model. There are currently 31 Excel Center locations in five states and Washington, D.C., with more in the planning phases.

HEALTH Some barriers that emerge later in life, including a limited education or criminal history, can be traced to an individual’s childhood—even as far back as the womb. For example, prenatal tobacco exposure increases the risk of preterm delivery, low birth-weight, behavioral issues and adolescent crime. In addition, preterm delivery and low birth-weight are the leading contributors to infant mortality, a health metric that Indiana ranks among the worst in the nation on. Goodwill’s Nurse-Family Partnership pairs firsttime, low-income moms with a registered nurse who makes regular home visits, teaching families about the habits of a healthy pregnancy and early childhood development.

Support for Moms and Babies When Cieara Jake first connected with Goodwill’s Nurse-Family Partnership program, she was struggling with a number of challenges. “My depression and anxiety preceded my pregnancy, but being in an abusive relationship made it even worse,” Cieara said. She was not taking her prescribed medications because she was afraid it could harm her baby. “One of the first things we discussed was the importance of Cieara’s own health—including her mental health—to the health of her baby,” explained Donya Jackson, a Registered Nurse and Cieara’s Nurse Home Visitor. “I encouraged her to take her medications.” When Cieara filed for divorce from her husband and moved back in with her parents, her life began to change for the better. Donya helped her secure high-quality child care

for her daughter Laila and referred her to a domestic violence program where she met other women that she could relate to.

“I loved meeting with my nurse,” Cieara said. “She was very supportive, knowledgeable and resourceful.” In addition to completing her bachelor’s degree in general studies, Cieara graduated from NurseFamily Partnership in January 2019, when Laila turned two years old. Through the help of Habitat for Humanity, Cieara and Laila moved into their own home in July 2019. “Having Donya at the most vulnerable and dark times of my life was such a blessing to me and my daughter,” Cieara said.

New Indiana Program Supports Nurse-Family Partnership In May 2019, Governor Eric Holcomb visited Goodwill’s NurseFamily Partnership to sign a bill that created a state perinatal navigator program, which connects expecting moms with maternal-child health programs like Nurse-Family Partnership. The new state program supports Holcomb’s goal to improve Indiana’s infant mortality rate from the worst in the midwest to the best by 2024. For the first time in six years, Indiana’s infant mortality rate recently dropped from 7.3 to 6.8 (deaths per 1,000 live births).

Jim McClelland Inducted Into Goodwill Industries Hall of Fame Jim McClelland, former CEO and President of then Goodwill Industries of Central Indiana, was recently inducted into the Goodwill Industries® Hall of Fame, which recognizes retired Goodwill CEOs, staff, volunteers, and others who have made exemplary contributions to the broader Goodwill Industries movement over an extended period of time.

“Being inducted into the Goodwill Industries Hall of Fame is an honor that caps off my long career with the organization,” McClelland said. Throughout his 45 years employed at Goodwill—41 as President and CEO—McClelland was known as a thought leader and forceful voice on issues impacting the organization 16

and those we serve. He understood that in order to grow the mission, Goodwill needed to grow its business, and in that spirit, he created a culture that encouraged evolving and adapting, while always staying true to our purpose to serve the community. Under McClelland’s stewardship, the organization grew from 558 employees to more than 3,200 and from $3 million in annual revenue to $130 million. In addition, Goodwill Industries of Central Indiana became one of the area’s largest non-profit employers. The organization’s endowment also grew from $120,000 to $30 million, providing the seed money necessary for future innovations. Alongside its business and job growth, Goodwill multiplied its impact in the community under McClelland’s leadership through the development and operation of The Excel Center, its unique high

school for adults, and Nurse-Family Partnership, its maternal-child health program for at-risk moms. McClelland emphasizes that by identifying the links between low educational attainment, teen pregnancy, crime, poverty and other related issues, and building partnerships that address these challenges holistically, we can begin to permanently remove the barriers that hold people back. Today, nearly 5,000 adults have earned a diploma from Goodwill’s Excel Center, and nearly 5,000 women have been served by Goodwill’s Nurse-Family Partnership. Many more thousands have been placed in jobs, either directly or through one of Goodwill’s programs. Instituted in 1991, the Goodwill Industries Hall of Fame includes just 53 members.

Board Chairs' Message As the stories in this Annual Report illustrate, 2019 was a great year for Goodwill. Thanks to the Hoosiers who donate and shop at our stores, lives are being changed every day. We entered 2020 with momentum and an ambitious set of goals, but the unprecedented closing of our retail stores for more than a month as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic significantly impacted the people we serve as well as the financial health of our organization, requiring us to realign our objectives with today’s realities. As a social services organization that works to address the root causes of poverty, Goodwill is uniquely positioned to support Hoosiers who have been impacted by the coronavirus. Goodwill makes a dollar go further than any other organization. When you donate and shop at Goodwill, you’re giving an adult a second chance at a diploma, a first-time mom the services of a nurse home visitor and professional development opportunities to a person with an employment barrier, like a disability, criminal history or limited education.

In addition to shopping at our stores and donating your goods, we encourage you to get involved with Goodwill in a new way this year. Share Goodwill’s mission successes with friends and family. Refer an adult who needs a diploma to The Excel Center or a first-time mom to Goodwill’s NurseFamily Partnership program. Refer someone with an employment barrier for a job, or work with our in-house job placement team to match people with jobs at your company. Make a financial gift.

“I’ve had the privilege of seeing The Excel Center grow from its infancy into a leading institution for adults seeking to earn their high school diploma,” Zink said. “We are pleased to donate a building that will help Goodwill continue to change lives."

Goodwill Young Leaders: Meet Abby VanDerHeyden Abby VanDerHeyden, Wealth Advisor and Generation Next Team Leader at Bedel Financial Consulting, discusses her involvement with Goodwill Young Leaders, a group of professionals with diverse backgrounds and experiences who support and promote Goodwill’s mission services in central and southern Indiana.

Indianapolis Metropolitan High School, I knew I wanted to be more involved.

What inspired you to get involved with Goodwill Young Leaders? I wanted to have an impact in my community and was encouraged by Elaine Bedel, who served on the board of directors of the Goodwill Foundation of Central & Southern Indiana, to check out Goodwill and the Young Leaders.

How do the Young Leaders make a difference? Goodwill Young Leaders support the organization through our fundraising activities. Each year, we offer a $10,000 grant to the Goodwill department or program with the most innovative pilot proposal. This grant has provided senior citizens with laptop computers as they’re learning a new job skill and financial literacy program participants with a savings match incentive. The most recent grant will support doulas for our Nurse-Family Partnership moms.

What was your first impression of Goodwill? I was already familiar with Goodwill as a thrift store and was even a donor, but I had no idea about the mission and how my donations served people in my community. After touring Goodwill Commercial Services and

What about your involvement with the Young Leaders are you most proud of? The most rewarding part of being a Goodwill Young Leader is learning about the new and different ways Goodwill impacts lives in our community and knowing that we helped support those efforts. I’ve

become more passionate about the work as a result of my involvement. What would you say to someone who asks, ‘Why should I give to Goodwill?’ Your financial support provides invaluable resources to members of our community, including jobs, education through Goodwill’s adult high schools (The Excel Center) and health services through Nurse-Family Partnership, which pairs moms with nurses. Your support changes people’s lives and helps them become economically self-sufficient.

About the Goodwill Young Leaders Established in 2014, the Goodwill Young Leaders Board was formed to engage a new generation of leaders to further the mission of Goodwill. Young Leaders impact the mission through direct volunteer service, philanthropic giving and the facilitation of new relationships. 19
