Goodwill Industries of Northern New England provides community resources that eliminate barriers to opportunity and help people reach their fullest potential through the power of work.

A social enterprise for over 100 years, Goodwill reflects economic, social and environmental sustainability, with a focus on connecting people to marketplace employment. Our services are funded by revenue from retail and recycling operations, grants, fees, and philanthropic gifts.

Last year, we served close to 50,000 people through our programs in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.
