Our Mission

To Help People Overcome Barriers To Independence.

Goodwill’s mission is to recognize and help individuals overcome the barriers that they may face at home, in the community, and within their own development.


Our Community

Every day, Goodwill Industries of Northeast Iowa, Inc. makes a difference by providing life-changing opportunities to disadvantaged and/or disabled members of our community:

  • Any person who is 17 or older (and any child in HCBS) who has a documented disability may be eligible to receive services
  • Training and placement services allow enrollees to develop industry-specific skills and work with a placement expert with the goal of obtaining future employment
  • A multi-faceted offering of modern services and products, including retail stores, donation centers, online merchandise options, and more



Goodwill Industries of Northeast Iowa, Inc. is helping Dennis Bond forge a new life. After 10 years of independent living, Dennis Bond, 70, of West Union, Iowa still credits Goodwill Industries of Northeast Iowa, Inc. with giving him the tools and assistance he needed to live as independently as possible. Since starting services with Goodwill, Dennis has been able to work his way down from receiving several hours of service a day to receiving several hours a week.

Today, Dennis still manages his own apartment, has strong ties with his community, continues to participate in, and attend, Men’s bible study, and loves to help others whenever possible. Including, donating items he no longer uses to those in need.
