Goodwill has been providing quality, reliable and timely services to government contracts for several years. While ensuring that we meet or exceed specific requirement, we also maintain the highest quality standards.
Goodwill has six federal contracts awarded under the AbilityOne program of the Javits Wagner O’ Day Act. Under the AbilityOne program, Goodwill performs the services using employees with disabilities.
Goodwill is employing a total of 69 individuals with disabilities under these six contracts.
Under the AbilityOne program, Goodwill is required to maintain a ratio of 75 percent of the employees having a severe disability.

The AbilityOne program is the largest single source of employment for people who are blind or have significant disabilities in the United States and is cost effective to empower many of them to achieve greater independence by reducing dependence on government support and joining the ranks of taxpayers. However, people with significant remain one of America’s greatest untapped labor resources, with nearly 70 percent of this population not employed.
The AbilityOne Program develops and delivers employment opportunities that provide individual choice, equitable wages and benefits, upward mobility and personal satisfaction for more than 45,000 people who are blind or have other significant disabilities. These individuals are employed by a network of more than 600 nonprofit agencies that provide a wide array of quality products and services at a fair price to federal customers. People with disabilities at these agencies are working on projects in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Guam.
