Chattanooga Goodwill Industries opened its doors in 1923 as the first Goodwill organization in the state of Tennessee. Ninety years later, we are still at work serving residents in 23 counties in Southeast Tennessee and Northwest Georgia.
Work training programs and services remain the hallmark of Chattanooga Goodwill Industries. But several other mission programs designed to help people with disabilities and other disadvantages find employment have been added to the roster.
Some of these programs, such as the Assistance Dog Program and HELPs (the Health Equipment Medical Link Program service, a free-standing medical equipment site) are unique to Chattanooga among the national Goodwill network.
Our programs are designed to help people go to work. We believe that work creates the economic energy that builds strong families and strong communities. Work helps build self-confidence, friendships and independence. Everyone deserves a chance, and Goodwill provides it.
“Fly Away Homes,” as a work training program, joins an impressive inventory of mission services at Chattanooga Goodwill Industries that offers people “a hand up, not a hand out.”
