Our Vision and Values

Our History

Founded in 1925, we are a non-profit with a mission to put people to work. We believe that individuals often need a hand up rather than a hand out.

Everyday we are guided by our core values including:

  • Service: We exist to serve our communities and to put people to work
  • Excellence: We challenge ourselves to continually grow, learn and improve
  • Ethics: We are good stewards of all that is entrusted to us
  • Diversity: We embrace diversity, equity and inclusion and respect all people
  • Safety: We put safety first in all we do
  • Accountability: We hold ourselves and each other accountable to our core values

Our Corporate Responsibility Statement

We have a long-standing commitment to responsible management, which we believe is fundamental to our mission impact and long-term sustainability. We conduct our businesses in a way that emphasizes good governance, operational integrity, ethics and respect for our employees, our community and the environment.

Our aim is to act responsibly in everything that we do, and we believe that achieving our mission results from an emphasis on shopper, donor and jobseeker satisfaction; the development and support of our employees; and impact in the communities in which we operate and serve. This Corporate Responsibility Statement reflects the core values that guide us in conducting the activities of Goodwill of North Georgia and Goodwill Industries of North Georgia.
