United Way Invests in Indianapolis-Based Goodwill Services

Goodwill of Central & Southern Indiana is the grateful recipient of $250,000 from the United Way of Central Indiana, which will be used to support individuals who need access to safe and affordable housing, healthy food and nutrition programs, health care services, transportation and other basic needs.

“Hoosiers who are hungry, homeless, in need of health care or without reliable transportation are unlikely to focus on broader education and career goals,” said Kent A. Kramer, president and CEO at Goodwill of Central & Southern Indiana. “This generous financial gift from the United Way will help Goodwill support the thousands of individuals we serve each year.”

Goodwill will use the grant funds received to support mission services and to ensure some of our most vulnerable neighbors in central Indiana are supported in their education, health and career goals. In addition, Goodwill strives to provide basic needs assistance, including transportation assistance, child care, meals, access to mental
health professionals, legal assistance, health care and more.

Goodwill of Central and Southern Indiana’s mission is to change lives every day by empowering people to increase their independence and reach their potential through education, health and employment. With the financial aid from United Way of Central Indiana, Goodwill can effectively provide a long-lasting, sustainable future for those who need it most.
