Job opportunities at Goodwill Great Lakes

What is AbilityOne?

Providing employment opportunities to more than 90,000 people, including nearly 3,000 veterans, the AbilityOne Program is the largest source of employment for people who are blind or have other significant disabilities in the United States. The program connects government and corporate customers in need of products and services to a nationwide network of more than 750 community nonprofit agencies that hire talented people with disabilities to get the  job done.

Millions of Americans with disabilities remain underemployed and unemployed despite their desire to work. Since 1974, the U. S. Navy, Goodwill, and SourceAmerica have partnered through the AbilityOne Program to provide individuals with significant disabilities the opportunity to gain valuable on-the-job training, real-world work experience, and opportunity to demonstrate their abilities while earning competitive wages and benefits. It’s a business solution that makes the American Dream more accessible, and it’s one we can all feel good about.
