Company Profile (Mission, Vision & Values)

Donate Stuff. Shop Often, Create Jobs.

Goodwill of the Southern Alleghenies (formerly Goodwill Industries of the Conemaugh Valley, incorporated in 1962) is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization headquartered in Johnstown, Pennsylvania serving the counties of Bedford, Blair, Cambria, Huntingdon, Indiana, Somerset, and a portion of Westmoreland. Revenue from the sale of donated goods in the organization’s 11 Goodwill Retail Stores supports its mission of empowering individuals and families with employment barriers to achieve their fullest potential in the community through work services. Adult and youth services include education and career services, job placement, postemployment supports, and psychiatric rehabilitation. Goodwill of the Southern Alleghenies is an independent, community-based member organization of Goodwill Industries International, a 158-member network in the U.S., Canada, and 13 other countries

When most people hear the name “Goodwill,” they think of the stores that sell items donated by the public. But that’s only part of the larger great story. The lesser-known, but very critical role that Goodwill plays is to provide services for people with barriers.

And the greatest financial support for these in-demand services comes from the role for which the Goodwill name is best known − the sale of donated goods.

Goodwill’s Vision

Individuals and families with employment barriers in our region will become employed, self-sufficient, and integrated into the community.
