The Lives Behind the Impact


At Goodwill Omaha, we never lose sight of our mission because we have the pleasure of building one-on-one relationships with the people we help. We witness the impact of what we do each and every day and are always reminded of its importance because there are livelihoods AND dignity at stake for our program participants.

And while our organization might be the vehicle that makes it possible, your donations are what have helped these deserving individuals get help. Meet some of our program participants below and see just how far your donations have gone.
