Goodwill Industries of Central Iowa – we translate the good in the local community to programs and resources that change lives. While you might know us for our retail stores, we’re more than just a place for great deals – we provide job training programs that improve our community and inspire hope, one person at a time.
Goodwill’s retail division is comprised of a network of 18 retail and 1 outlet store throughout the 22 counties we serve in central Iowa. Profits from these retail stores, as well as donor contributions, fund Goodwill’s highly successful programs in workforce development. We help people find the tools to succeed at work and in life.
