Mission Services

We create employment opportunities and assist individuals to gain employment and self-sufficiency.
Who We Are.

We create employment opportunities to people who need it most.


We are a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization. At Goodwill, we believe in giving a hand up, not a handout — a saying coined by Goodwill’s founder, the Rev. Edgar J. Helms.


Our Donors are the lifeline of Alabama Goodwill. When you donate clothes, shoes, furniture, toys, games, books, DVDs, you support our mission of helping make life better for families and people throughout the community.

Success Stories

We believe that all people have the opportunity to reach their full potential through the power of work. View these inspiring stories below to see how we are helping others create opportunities for themselves.

Our Impact

We are the leaders in the recycle – repurpose – reuse movement. Goodwill keeps tons of gently used goods circulating back into the community. Goodwill stays green and continually reduces its carbon footprint for our communities.

“I had to learn how to believe in myself. When I got to Goodwill, It's like it started all over again.”

Sharron Jackson,  Case Manager

Our Mission

We Specialize in Three Areas.

Whether you’re shopping in one of our retail stores or browsing our online selection, shopping at Alabama Goodwill is a simple way to save money on clothes, shoes, books and household items—without sacrificing quality or style. And, along with getting great bargains, you’ll be directly supporting services that help people find meaningful work in Alabama.

We envision AGI as an annual $30 million dollar organization by the year 2024, with the resources necessary to support and sustain that growth. We will create an additional 400 jobs, serve 5,000 individuals in need of our services, and place 100 individuals with barriers into competitive employment year by that time. parties, or try to ‘upsell’ other services on the back of people’s generosity.

When you work for Goodwill, you play a valuable role in improving our community. Whether you want to learn new skills to prepare you for a job or advance in your career, get assistance with your résumé and cover letter, or work for Goodwill itself, we can help make your next position one you love and are fully prepared for.
