Crystal is a single mother of five children. She spent a lot of time in the hospital after her daughter became deathly ill, and she lost her job. When she struggled to keep up with payments, Crystal’s family became homeless. After remaining unemployed for months, Crystal earned a new job. She now works nights to support her family, helps her children with their online schoolwork during the day, and only rests a few hours each evening before heading back to work. Crystal found a new place to live, but she needs clothing to care for her children, and household items to build a home.

You can empower Crystal, and hundreds of families like hers. Give comfort, security, and hope this holiday season.

Your gift today will secure clothing and household necessities for Crystal and others in need.

In Support of Goodwill of Western Missouri & Eastern Kansas

Goodwill of Western Missouri and Eastern Kansas (Goodwill) empowers people to discover their potential and adapt for the future through the power of work. We help job seekers throughout the entire employment continuum; we support individuals in engaging the workforce, retaining work, gaining skills, and advancing their careers. In 2020, we served 12,065 individuals and placed 601 people into new employment.


Goodwill provides workforce development services, job training, and employment in 82 counties across western Missouri and eastern Kansas, focusing our programs in the following counties: Jackson, Clay, Platte, Wyandotte, and Johnson. We support individuals with different abilities and disadvantaging conditions, such as persons with physical challenges or cognitive disorders, limited education and work history, criminal backgrounds, underemployment or unemployment, or a situational barrier such as lack of transportation or housing.


We believe every person deserves the opportunity to work. Employment is more than a paycheck. It is independence, agency, dignity, and equality. Jobs empower people to support themselves and their loved ones, pursue life goals, and participate in their communities. 


Goodwill impacts lives through three strategies customized to meet participants’ unique needs:


● Our donated goods retail model provides employment, career planning, and upskilling through the recycling and reselling of material donations in our stores. 

● Our commercial and government contracts offer case management and employment for individuals with a different ability. 

● Our employment services and workforce development programs provide job training, job coaching, career placement, and ongoing retention supports for people with severe barriers to employment.


Over our 127 years, we have served over 630,000 people, provided over 23,017,000 services and secured over 203,000 jobs.
