For Veterans

Goodwill Houston helps veterans as they re-integrate into the civilian labor market after military service or overcome other barriers to employment. All veterans' programs require that applicants have at least one day of active military service and an other-than-dishonorable discharge.

If you are a veteran and would like to inquire about our services, please contact our staff at (713) 699-6352.
