Dear Friends and Supporters,

Since 1945, Goodwill Houston has continued to establish itself as one of Houston’s leading nonprofits while at the same time contributing to the local economy and creating job opportunities for those with barriers to employment. Veterans, older workers, youth, individuals with disabilities, and those formerly incarcerated all benefit from the services Goodwill Houston provides.  Our six Job Connection Centers along with our Virtual Job Connection Center — hosted right here on our website — allow anyone to access our free programs and opportunities digitally or in person. With over 50 retail locations and over 40 standalone Donation Centers, we are poised to fulfill our commitment to individuals, families, and our local community throughout Austin, Brazoria, Fort Bend, Galveston, Harris, Montgomery, Walker, and Washington counties. 

We take great pride on the impact we’ve had in the Houston area for over 75 years and look forward to a future full of optimism.

But we couldn’t do it without you. By donating your gently used items, shopping, volunteering your time, or giving through our various fundraising activities and events, you make a difference and give individuals with barriers to employment an opportunity to rebuild their lives. I am immensely proud of what Goodwill Houston stands for and words we live by: integrity, compassion, excellence, innovation, unity, and passion.

Thank you for your continued support of our life-changing mission.
