Goodwill it. 2021 Annual Report
In 2021, we took chances,
“In the end… we only regret the chances we didn’t take, the relationships we were afraid to have, and the decisions we waited too long to make.”
stepped out of the security of what we have always done, forged new relationships, and took advantage of opportunities that lay in -Lewis Carroll front of us; we have no regrets. As a result, it was one of our most successful years. We served 14,628 people in our community through our free programs and services and placed 1,465 in community-based employment. We launched a new Production Assistant Training program; opened a new location in Espanola; launched an e-commerce site; updated and implemented a variety of technology systems to increase our efficiency and effectiveness across the organization; heightened our commitment to our employees by providing greater opportunities for learning and development; completed our next three-year strategic plan; and much more… We could not have achieved all of this without our hardworking, dedicated, and loyal employees. I continue to be inspired by their capacity for caring and commitment to service and our mission. I truly believe that we as an organization live to serve the people of our community and each other, and I see it come to life in everything that we do. And while we are still operating in a world that presents new challenges and is changing each and every day, it does not set us back; it only drives us forward in more inspired ways. I continue to serve this organization and community in gratitude.

New Mexicans we helped When Davon met his Goodwill
Supportive Services for Veteran Families Case Manager (SSVF), he faced a housing crisis and was at risk of homelessness. Non-renewal of a lease had ended his permanent housing leaving him between homes and relying on friends for shelter. Further, because of his challenging background and low income, it was
Lisa enrolled in the Senior Community Service Employment Program
(SCSEP) in April of 2021. When she found help at Goodwill, Lisa had run out of savings and could not find employment. She heard about the SCSEP program from her guardian, who had been diligently working to help her become self-sufficient. Lisa’s barriers to employment were limited work history, risk of homelessness, and lack of transportation. Also, Lisa was very reluctant to explore employment because she feared the process of using public transportation. She expressed concerns that she did not have proper work attire and was generally unsure if she would be a good employee. Her Goodwill SCSEP Coordinator offered reassurance that Goodwill would help Lisa in all ways possible and encouraged her to continue her pursuit of employment. Her coordinator supported Lisa throughout the process, including referring her to the Division of Rehabilitation for bus passes and clothing allowance. Lisa quickly gained confidence taking the city bus and working towards her employment goals. Today, Lisa is training at a government agency as an office assistant.
difficult to find an apartment that would accept his application. His Goodwill case manager worked consistently with him to make phone calls and apply to apartments of interest. After months of effort, one of Davon’s rental applications was accepted. Once settled into permanent housing, Davon continued his quest to find stable employment. This priorities shift made him eligible for Goodwill’s Homeless Veterans Integration Program (HVRP). Davon worked diligently with HVRP to find a job and stabilize his life. Now approved for a shallow subsidy program, Davon will continue to stabilize, build savings, and budget for two years.
Through this host agency training, she has built rapport with staff and other participants. She has learned teamwork, communication, responsibility, and customer service skills. She has also gained clerical skills by greeting customers, answering phones, and filing. Once apprehensive, Lisa is now a recognized team player and is well-liked among her supervisors, other participants, and agency visitors. Her continuing support from Goodwill will include job search and interviewing skills. Lisa plans to continue training to have skills that will allow her to find and
maintain meaningful employment.
