18,000 Pounds of Donations Collected by Lincoln Neighborhoods
One Stop Career Center becomes American Job Center
5 Non-Profits in Lincoln Receive Funding in 2013
“This event helped bring our neighborhood together and revitalize our association. Winning third place was an unexpected, pleasant surprise!” said Dayna Krannawitter of the Arnold Heights/Arnold School-Neighborhood Advisory Committee.
First Annual Neighborhood Challenge
Goodwill Expands Grant Funding
Job Connection Moves to New Location
Beginning in 2013, Goodwill expanded the number of agencies it provided funding to for existing employment services and readiness programs in the Lincoln community. A donation to Goodwill is tax deductible and will not only support Goodwill’s employment programs, but several other programs that complement Goodwill’s throughout the city.

“Goodwill recognized that services provided by peer agencies prepare people served by Goodwill to better succeed in Goodwill’s employment programs” said Joanne Pickrel, CEO for Goodwill Industries Serving Southeast Nebraska, Inc. “Great community support from Goodwill donors and shoppers makes this possible," Pickrel concluded.



Goodwill continuously strives to expand its services to meet the needs of those who face barriers to employment. "Duplicate programming can become an issue and make it more difficult for individuals to navigate through services available to them," explains Sarah Murtagh Goodwill's Director of Employment services. "By supporting agencies already providing services that align with Goodwill's mission, we do a better job for the people we mutually serve" said Murtagh. Beginning in 2012, Lincoln Literacy and Community Justice Center were offered funding by Goodwill. In 2013, Goodwill expanded support to include Heartland Big Brothers Big Sisters, The Arc of Lincoln and YWCA Lincoln’s Job Outfitters program.
Since 2002, Goodwill has operated its Job Connection computer lab in Lincoln’s One Stop Career Center at 1010 N Street in the Gold’s Building, assisting thousands of job seekers with obtaining employment. In September of 2013, the city announced the re-branding of the One Stop Career Center, now called The American Job Center, and its relocation to Southeast Community College – Education Square at 1111 O Street.

The City's Urban Development Department is the operator of the Career Center. Jan Norlander-Jensen, Workforce Investment Administrator for Urban Development, said the new location offers smaller, but more usable space for the agencies who offer service there.

"The atmosphere is professional and attractive, and the new facility is surrounded by the energy of a college campus," said Urban Development Director Dave Landis. "That is good for clients and staff. The new site also has convenient access to buses, a parking garage and the skywalk system."

SCC President Dr. Jack Huck said he is pleased the American Job Center is relocating to Education Square. "The services provided by the training partners fit nicely with the educational component that SCC provides," Huck said. "We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship."

Although Goodwill no longer operates its own Job Connection computer lab at the new facility, it remains a volunteer partner at the American Job Center, offering assistance to individuals who use the resources available during their search for employment.

Goodwill Industries Serving Southeast Nebraska, Inc. kicked off the start of summer with its first ever Neighborhood Challenge, which began May 26 and ended July 6. The six weeklong event was a friendly competition between the neighborhoods of Lincoln, NE and promoted community involvement through donation drives and garage sales. The top three neighborhoods who collected the most items to be donated to Goodwill received cash prizes to invest back into the community project of their choice.

Six neighborhoods participated in the Neighborhood Challenge and collectively donated almost 18,000 pounds of miscellaneous clothing, furniture, and household items to Goodwill. The winners were 40th and A Neighborhood Association (9,053 pounds), Eastridge Neighborhood Association (2,595 pounds), and Arnold Heights/Arnold School-Neighborhood Advisory Committee (2,568 pounds).

Each association has expressed how they plan to strengthen their community with the prize money which includes the revitalization of Sunburst Park, located in the 40th and A area, a new walking path and updated playground equipment at Eastridge Elementary School, and a community event to celebrate the history and diversity of the NW 48th Street neighborhoods.

“Goodwill continually strives to strengthen the Lincoln community through its programming, support of other local non-profits, and its recycling efforts,” said Amanda Herndon, Communications Director for Goodwill. “This was a unique way for Goodwill to share its mission and promote community while supporting individual neighborhoods’ visions of their own stronger community.”

“We are thrilled with the opportunity to partner with Goodwill,” said Julie Cervantes-Salomons, Executive Director for HBBBS. “To have a fellow nonprofit organization that not only recognizes the role we play, but also has the means to support us through their grant program is very exciting. We truly appreciate Goodwill looking at our entire community and ways we can all support a common goal.”

Goodwill CEO Speaks of 2013 and Thanks the Board of Directors
20 Years of Service
In March of 1993 I began a journey that would include meeting and working with countless wonderful people and learning that never ends. There are members of our Goodwill team who were not yet born in March, 1993. There are team members who were here before I was and are still here, and a few who left and returned. There is something to learn from all of them.

I am fortunate to meet with most of our newly hired groups of staff during their first day of training. Together we break down word by word, the mission of Goodwill . . . willing workers employed and community resources maximized. There is always something fresh in their perceptions of what Goodwill means to the community. I tell them that there is never a dull moment and that in over twenty years, there have been but a handful of days that I didn't want to come to work. That's the truth.

Reflecting on twenty years of Goodwill, I could write far more than anyone would want to read. After all, we didn't carry cell phones or use email when I started at Goodwill. I shared a 486 IBM compatible pc running Windows 3.0 with an office mate.

What makes it most exciting though, is the tomorrows for which we have prepared a foundation. With the guidance of a Board committed to our mission and strength, Goodwill is positioned for new opportunities. The talent and hard work of a focused team will make the most of those opportunities as Goodwill moves forward.
