where your things
start new lives
Every donated item we sell helps us teach people the skills they need to end the cycle of unemployment. Through jobs, job training, and coaching Goodwill Columbus is here to help.
We believe in transforming communities through the power of work. From free career consulting to job placement, donated goods retail stores to custodial and security services, vocational habilitation to in-home caregiving, Goodwill Columbus is passionate about the individuals we serve.
Goodwill Columbus is proud to be one of the region’s largest job providers and a trusted source in Central Ohio for equipping people for work through job skills, training, and first or next best employment opportunities.
Our career trainings and certifications are offered free of charge to the public and are focused on preparing individuals, of various backgrounds, for in-demand jobs in the healthcare, information technology, hospitality, retail, and business sectors.
Proceeds generated by our familiar thrift stores directly support the Goodwill mission in Columbus, Ohio. So that perfect pair of jeans will help a Franklin County mother find her next job. The vintage vinyl record will support community-based career training. And a gently used pick-up truck will provide job and life skills to a neighbor with developmental disabilities.
Find a Job
Goodwill Columbus believes the power of work can transform lives. We have confidence that our commitment to career navigation and skills development can lead to long-term economic stability for individuals, their families, and the greater Columbus community.
Whether you are looking for your first job, your next job, or to grow your skills, Goodwill is here to help.
