President’s Message

Welcome to Goodwill West Texas.

Our website is designed to be a resource for learning about empowering people, helping them fulfill their potential, improve the lives of their families, and contribute to the growth of their community through the power of work.

Here at Goodwill West Texas we embrace our mission with a passion and purpose centered around building lives through employment. Our Motto: Jobs Build Lives.

Since Goodwill West Texas was established in 1983 based on the concern and vision of many concerned citizens in Abilene, Goodwill West Texas has served the needs of all job seekers, including programs for youth, seniors, veterans, those with disabilities, criminal backgrounds and many other barriers to employment.

There has never been a greater need for an organization to offer a hand-up instead of a hand-out than in today’s culture. A January 2017 report indicates that there are over twenty-three (23) million people without work who are looking to be gainfully employed in the United States. We want to help those individuals find dignity, improve their quality of life, and help them reach their potential through job skills training, education, and job placement.

In collaboration with many community partners, regional businesses, and local governments, we are continuously working to become the premiere workforce resource in West Texas in the thirty-five (35) counties we serve. It is our objective to partner with those providing crisis and first-line job seeker help to enhance their efforts on a long-term, forward focusing basis.

How can YOU partner with us to help those in your community? Donate gently used items and goods to a Goodwill in your community, save on wonderful and unique items by shopping in our stores, tell others about the great work being done here at your local Goodwill, invite some friends, family, or neighbors to join you for a tour, and recommend your place of business to partner with Goodwill (job placement, job postings, client referrals, and donation of used supplies or furniture).

As the President of Goodwill West Texas, I am proud of all that we have accomplished and I am excited about our future plans to serve the great communities of West Texas. I hope you will partner with us on a purpose that is so much greater than ourselves… changing lives through the power of work.

Serving Our Community,

Kevin Bradford
