 Company Overview 


Goodwill Industries of the Southern Rivers (GWISR) mission is Developing People, Changing Lives, and Building Communities which ultimately reduces poverty and unemployment. Our career centers and other job training, placement and advancement programs make this possible by giving people the support and skills they need to not only find and maintain employment, but become self-sufficient. It is the organization's goal to change a life for a lifetime and break the cycle of generational poverty by intertwining job training and placement services with financial literacy and financial education.

Our company is unique in that the majority of our programs are funded through the revenue generated at our 9 retail stores and PowerWorks Industries. These operations, which span 50 counties in West Georgia and East Alabama, generate annual revenues in excess of $18 million. In 2011, through its mission based programs, GWISR has placed 3,540 people into employment, generating an economic impact of $51.2 million, made possible through your donations of gently used goods. Our successful, self-funded business model is the result of long-term strategic planning and consciously executed business decisions.
