Goodwill Industries of Southern California

Goodwill Industries of Southern California (GISC) enhances the quality of the lives of people who have disabilities and other vocational disadvantages by assisting them to become productive and self-sufficient through education, training, work experience and career opportunities in the community. Founded for the sole purpose of helping people help themselves and managed not as a charity but as a chance to achieve self-sufficiency, Katherine B. Higgins started what is today GISC near the plaza of the old Pueblo in Los Angeles in 1916. Today, Goodwill assists more than 3,000 people each year.
