General Info

Goodwill Industries of Southern Oregon's Mission is to help individuals and  families build social and employment skills to achieve personal and economic independence.

Established in 1967 Reverend Edgar James Helms, a Methodist minister, started Goodwill Industries International in 1902. From his church in Boston's South End, he saw a need to help the people who lived in this forsaken part of town. Receiving donations of clothing from the wealthier residents of Beacon Hill, he began  employing impoverished individuals to repair and refurbish the used items to sell. Initially he wanted to give the employees the clothing for free in return for their labor. These workers realized that they didn't want a "hand out" but would rather receive wages for their work. So, from then on, he sold the clothing at a modest price and used that income to pay wages to the workers. Goodwill's emphasis from the beginning was on creating opportunity not charity. The system worked, and the Goodwill philosophy of "a hand up, not a hand out" was born. In 1967, a group of parents in Grants Pass established the first Goodwill in Southern Oregon. The headquarters moved to Medford in 1979.
