Transforming the lives of individuals through pathways to independence and the power of work.
We recognize that some communities have historically been denied access to the opportunities required for economic mobility. Our trainings and certifications are offered free of charge and are focused on preparing individuals for in demand jobs in the healthcare, information technology, hospitality, retail, and business sectors.
Goodwill Columbus is committed to a future full of opportunity regardless of age, color, gender identity, justice system involvement, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or veteran or disability status
Developmental Disability Services

Goodwill Columbus proudly serves as a highly respected provider of day and residential services for individuals with developmental disabilities and behavioral health challenges. Our holistic approach focuses on vocational habilitation, community integration, volunteerism, and job opportunities within Goodwill and through our trusted partners.
