We are committed to people, the planet and community prosperity. We support all three through the power of work.
Through our mission, we believe that the power of work can address the intractable social issues of our time: tackling poverty, contributing to a greener planet and building stronger communities.
Our work changes lives.
As part of a global network implementing solutions at the local level, we are inspired by the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In particular, we are committed to realizing the following three SDGs for the people, the planet and the communities we support:
Reducing inequality by advocating for equal access to work, regardless of gender, age, race, sexuality or ability.
Assuring decent work and economic prosperity by strengthening the social and economic fabric of our neighbourhoods through stable and sustainable employment, responding to labour market needs and investing in future workforce development.
Building sustainable cities and communities and safeguarding the planet by integrating green practices into our business activities while engaging consumers in reuse and recycling to reduce our local landfill footprint.
Goodwill Amity harnesses the power of work to address the most pressing social, economic and environmental challenges facing our communities today: we’re a path to income security for individuals and their families; we’re a catalyst for strong and healthy neighbourhoods; we’re a benchmark for sustainability in the retail marketplace. In all these ways, Goodwill Amity is influencing positive, long-lasting transformational change.
