Goodwill mission participants in the spotlight

Nate’s Story:

Nate is a participant in Goodwill’s Supported Employment Work Program. While in the program, he worked on job searching and improving the skills he would need to be successful in community employment.

Through Goodwill’s Supported Employment Work Program, Nate applied for different jobs and attended various job interviews with the support of Goodwill staff. In September 2020, Nate was hired at Home Depot as a Lot Associate. Nate likes his schedule and the work of bringing carts in and helping to load vehicles.

“My co-workers at Home Depot are vey nice and help me out a lot”. ~Nate
