United Way of Southern Nevada Donates $77,000 to Help Goodwill Build Career Connections Facility

December 7, 2009 by  

United Way of Southern Nevada awarded Goodwill with a $77,000 grant to help build its second career facility in Las Vegas. The monetary donation funded the beginning construction stages of the project and helped secure additional financial investors.

“We are proud to be part this critical project serving as a beneficial resource to the community,” said Dan Goulet, president and CEO of United Way of Southern Nevada. “The center’s goal is aligned with United Way’s mission to enrich the lives of others through financial independence.”

“United Way’s funding will allow us to assist local citizens with disabilities and other barriers to employment by placing them in jobs that will help them live fulfilling lives,” said Steve Chartrand, president and CEO of Goodwill.

The Career Connections facility offers free job placement services to Valley residents and provides local businesses with motivated and qualified employees. This past year, Goodwill has served 2518 job seekers and has placed over 800 individuals in jobs. Located inside the Goodwill store on Tropicana, the facility will open on Dec. 7.
