Goodwill Industries Announces Special Job Fair | Goodwill Industries South Florida

www.goodwillsouthflorida.org, 23 Dec 2009 [cached]

"As part of our mission, we will tech those hired to work and will provide them with counseling and individual case management", said Dennis Pastrana, Goodwill's President & CEO. "We will provide a complete evaluation to develop a customized rehabilitation program and, based on their skills and capabilities, teach them how to operate power sewing equipment and do many other types of jobs."

Pastrana said Goodwill is interested in reaching other local vocational and special education schools, as well as churches and nursing homes for the disabled -- and the United Way --, to encourage their students and residents to attend the job fair. He is also interested in reaching families with disabled members at home.
"Goodwill teaches people to support themselves through work. We give individuals a hand up, not a hand down. We're a chance, not a charity," added Pastrana, noting that most of those who come to Goodwill depend on their families, the government, or someone else for help.
