Goodwill Organizations In Virginia Continue to Serve Job Seekers as the Commonwealth Emerges From The Coronavirus (COVID-19) Crisis
Goodwills across Virginia continue to evolve the collective response to the coronavirus pandemic, while supporting our employees and the communities we serve as the Commonwealth emerges from this unprecedented public health event.
The health and well-being of our communities remain top priorities for us. As mission-based, nonprofit organizations, members of the Virginia Goodwill Network (VGN) care deeply for the program participants and job seekers we serve, as well as our associates. We have been assessing and responding to the unique community needs in our area and taken additional measures to ensure continuity of mission services when possible while protecting the health and well-being of our associates and the community.
The demand for Goodwill’s mission services is greater now than ever before in our 100+ year history. Finding solutions to provide the employment services needed while maintaining a healthy, safe environment is essential. Currently, VGN member Goodwills are operating in various capacities to serve job seekers across the Commonwealth. Information on each Goodwill member can be found here. Further information on mission services delivery can be found on their respective websites.
Goodwills across Virginia continue to keep a close watch on the evolving situation and the guidance provided by the World Health Organization (WHO), U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and state, provincial and local governments. In addition to following government and local health department guidance, we are equipping all of our locations with recommended procedures to support our associates and the public and investing in new ways to serve job seekers in safe and socially distant ways.
As a partner to communities across Virginia for more than 100 years, we remain committed to continuing our mission of helping people who are facing challenges build skills, find jobs and grow their careers. This is true now during these difficult times as well as in the weeks, months and years ahead. Thank you in advance for your patience as we determine how best to continue serving our community, our team members and you.
