At Goodwill Industries of Kentucky, we serve thousands of job seekers across the Commonwealth looking for a hand up – not a handout – while entering the workforce. Soon, those services and more will be offered in West Louisville, where a higher-than-average percentage of residents are unemployed or underemployed.
These services will be made possible by the relocation and expansion of our headquarters to 28th and Broadway, where we’ll build an “opportunity campus,” which will be a one-stop shop for any and all career-service needs. It will house a variety of focused programs intended to benefit West Louisville job seekers with disabilities or disadvantages, such as criminal background or history of abuse.
Goodwill Peer Support Specialist Demond Bush has benefited from these services in the past, and he was recently featured in a WDRB segment detailing his story and the benefits of the new headquarters. VP of External Affairs DeVone Holt was also featured and discussed the expansion plan, including a timetable and community outreach efforts.
