How to Get Started

How Do I Get Started?


Goodwill makes it convenient for you to take the first step toward a better future. We will equip you with the tools you need to compete for jobs and provide you continuous support to ensure stability and stellar performance in the workplace. Goodwill specializes in providing services to individuals whose options are limited by a disability, criminal history, low education level or other barriers.

To begin you must attend our Open Intake, in which we sit down with you one-on-one and get to know more about you as a person. In this sit-down, we will ask you questions like: Do you have previous work experience? Are you better with people or with numbers? Are you able to transport yourself to work? and so on. From there, we determine the best path for you to gain employment including any necessary Training Programs or other services.

Those interested in Goodwill’s services need to arrive at Intake on Fridays between 8 am and 11 am at Goodwill Headquarters in Baltimore (222 E. Redwood Street, Baltimore, MD 21202). Walk-ins are also accepted Monday-Thursday from 8 am to 3 pm. Appointments can be made by calling 410-837-1800 x120,  x209  or x171 to make an appointment.
