Goodwill increases job opportunities for people with disabilities by working with SourceAmerica™ (formerly NISH), a nonprofit agency set up by the federal government to assist organizations like Goodwill in obtaining federal contracts.
SourceAmerica was established through the Javits-Wagner-O’Day Act (JWOD) which enables people who are blind or have other disabilities to work through local, community-based organizations to provide quality, on-time goods and services to the federal government. Goodwill has three AbilityOne/SourceAmerica contracts where more than 80% of employees have severe disabilities:
- Bluegrass Army Depot (Richmond, KY)
- Gene Snyder Courthouse (Louisville, KY)
- Mazzoli Federal Building (Louisville, KY)
