Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth, Inc.



About Us

Most people think of Goodwill as just a thrift store. But our business is really about changing lives. As a not-for-profit leader, Goodwill offers job training and other services to help people with disabilities and disadvantages acheive their maximum independence. Through Goodwill; job seekers, individuals with special needs, families and other members of our community gain self esteem and become independent, self-sufficient citizens. Lives are changed through the Power of Work. Goodwill is perhaps the most creative self-help idea of our time, conceived in 1902 by Edgar J. Helms, a Methodist minister in Boston. He created jobs by collecting unwanted household goods, then employing people to repair and resell them. The income from resold goods paid the worker’s wages. In turn, the reclaimed items became available to anyone at affordable prices.
