With the sales of donated goods and through philanthropic donations, Goodwill Manasota is able to assist people with disabilities and other barriers to employment by providing job skills training and employment opportunities. 

Veterans Services

Goodwill Manasota's American Veterans and Their Families Program was created in 2013 to help veterans reintegrate into their families, communities and jobs. The program – which is staffed by veterans – provides comprehensive case management and vocational services, networking opportunities, and assistance in navigating the wide array of available social service programs.

Goodpartner Coach Program

The GoodPartner Coach program provides individuals with disabilities and other barriers to employment with case management services and employability skills training. Every Goodwill Manasota employee is assigned a GoodPartner Coach. In conjunction with their coach, team members participate in a comprehensive needs assessment, the development of an individualized development plan, and then go through training components to reach ultimate desired outcomes.

Supported Jobs Plus

Implemented in 2005, the Supported JobsPlus program targets sustainable employment for those with significant disabilities. In conjunction with Goodwill's GoodPartner Coach program, SJP team members participate in a career needs assessment, the development of an individualized case management plan, and then go through training components to reach ultimate desired outcomes. Job performance and educational benchmarks are set, providing clear expectations for career advancement readiness. Ideally, individuals with disabilities will establish a lifetime link with Goodwill, so that they may take advantage of services available throughout the community.
