Goodwill Manasota Expands Supported JobsPlus Program

The Giving Coast

SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY MAR 31, 2021

Goodwill is launching new programs as well as expanding existing programs, such as Supported JobsPlus, which targets employment for individuals with severe disabilities. Goodwill has added 10 more slots for the Supported JobsPlus (SJP) program; four of those jobs have already been filled. This expansion comes in the wake of pandemic-related SJP team member losses, due to medical issues and fears of COVID-19 infection. Of Goodwill’s 700 employees, 65% have self-identified disabilities and/or disadvantaging conditions, while 53 – nearly 8% of its employees – have significant disabilities and participate in the SJP program.
