We put people to work!
Goodwill Industries of Southern New Jersey and Philadelphia is all about putting people to work. We've witnessed its power in transforming lives. Work helps build self-confidence, independence and dignity. At Goodwill, we believe everyone deserves a chance to have these things in life. As the late John F. Kennedy once said, "All of us do not have equal talents, but all of us should have an equal opportunity to develop our talents." Goodwill is pleased to be able to provide this chance. Since 1948, Goodwill has empowered thousands of local residents with special needs with the marketable job skills needed to succeed in the workplace. One job at a time, we are making a difference-strengthening both families and communities through the power of work.

Home away from home
When you are far from home, your child is in the hospital, and you have not had anything to eat the entire day, except for a vending machine, the last thought you should worry about is where am I going to stay tonight. Ronald McDonald House of Southern New Jersey (SNJ) strives to support these families with a safe haven from the hospital halls. Ronald McDonald House of SNJ opened on 6th Street in Camden in 1983. Ronald McDonald House of Southern New Jersey has served as a "home-away-from-home," for over 17,000 families whose children are being treated at nearby hospitals for critical illness or traumatic injuries. We enable over 800 families a year to focus on helping their children heal.
