GREENSBORO, NC – Goodwill Industries of Central North Carolina, Inc. (Triad Goodwill) is excited to share that they have been awarded a Poverty Ending Grant from United Way of Greater Greensboro. The $50,000 grant will support the growth of Triad Goodwill’s Careers On The Outside program, which is designed specifically for individuals with justice involvement.

“This grant will allow us to continue and enhance the services we provide to the justice involved community. We know that when people are employed, lives change and when lives change, so does the world,” shares Wendy Sellars, program manager of Careers On The Outside.

The Poverty Ending Grants from the United Way of Greater Greensboro are open to programs or collaboratives providing services that offer clear ways for people to leave poverty by increasing and maintaining their annual household income above the poverty threshold. This grant will benefit Triad Goodwill’s Careers On The Outside program, which provides training opportunities and career navigation to adults with justice involvement. The 1-week intensive program incorporates strength assessments, workplace skills, cognitive behavioral principles, job search best practices, placement assistance, and much more to lead to successful competitive employment for participants.

The organization is looking forward to serving many more individuals in their community thanks to this grant from the United Way of Greater Greensboro, and their generous donors, shoppers, and supporters.
