Ohio Valley Goodwill Industries is a 107-year-old mission driven social enterprise serving southwest Ohio, Northern Kentucky and Southeast Indiana. While most are familiar with our globally recognized thrift store operations, we are much more.

In 2021, Goodwill served 2,879 individuals and of those placed 920 in community employment, provided housing and other support to 373 Veterans and recycled more than 48 million pounds of donated material, all while being recognized as a Best Place to Work.
