By May 20, 2020Blog

Last fall, Goodwill Industries of Northwest Texas, a community rehabilitation program (CRP) within the State Use WorksWonders Program, was named “Small Employer of the Year” by the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC).

TWC recognized Goodwill Industries of Northwest Texas for generating job opportunities for individuals with barriers to employment, such as physical disabilities or mental health conditions, as well as providing individuals with the training and skills needed to establish and maintain employment, including the tools necessary for advancement within their employment environments.

Located in Lubbock, Goodwill Industries of Northwest Texas plays an essential role in increasing the employment rate for individuals with disabilities in a region where employment needs for this population could easily be overlooked. The organization embodies the WorksWonders Program’s mission to create unique employment opportunities for individuals across the state.

WorkQuest is proud to partner with Goodwill Industries of Northwest Texas, as well as all of its WorksWonders Program partners.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
