December Giving: Mental Health Support When Starting a New Job

The stress of starting a new job is real.

For many job-seekers in our community anxiety and fear keep them from working or keeping a job in the first few weeks. Your donation provides individual and on the job therapy so they can be successful in their new job.

You can remove this barrier for someone today with a gift to Goodwill Amity.

Let’s give jobs-seekers in need a “hand up” this December by raising $5,000 to remove barriers so they can participate in work.

Your donation will provide immediate support to those in need, so they can get the job they want.

While there are plenty of job openings right now, not everyone in our community can access them due to barriers like mental health, poverty, lack of experience, disabilities, immigration, racial discrimination and or childcare responsibilities.
