In Kentucky, Goodwill has seen a 24% increase in the number of people it placed in jobs.

From Business First:

“When unemployment is high, it is even more difficult for people with disabilities or other disadvantages to find employment,” Roland R. Blahnik, president and CEO of Goodwill Industries of Kentucky, said in the news release. “The economic conditions challenged our ability to place people into jobs, but with continuous effort, placements are returning to prior levels. Even with this success, we’re seeing many more people come to Goodwill for assistance in finding jobs.”
