Goodwill Accepts Family Strengthening Award in Indianapolis

West Michigan was one of just four Goodwill organizations internationally to receive the 2009 “Goodwill is Good for Families” Family Strengthening Award sponsored by the Annie E. Casey Foundation and Goodwill Industries International. “Family Strengthening” is a whole-family approach of service delivery, recognizing the correlation between success in the home and success in the workplace. The honor includes a $20,000 gift that will be used to further support Goodwill’s family strengthening efforts.

“At Goodwill, we know that problems at work often stem from problems at home as people struggle to balance their professional and family obligations,” said Jim Gibbons, President and CEO of Goodwill Industries International. “Our goal is to ensure that families have what they need so that the individuals served by Goodwill can be successful at work.”
