Half a century of Goodwill

There are more than 475,000 people of working age living with a disability in Miami-Dade County and for decades Goodwill of South Florida has worked to train and employ people with disabilities here in the 305.

They provide job training in apparel manufacturing, custodial and laundry services. And at their headquarters in Allapattah, they manufacture military uniforms and interment flags for the U.S. Department of Defense.

The organization is celebrating its 60th anniversary soon, which is just 10 years more than its longest-serving employee – Elba, who recently celebrated 50 years working at Goodwill.
