Keith Alcorn, CEO of Goodwill Industries of South Central Ohio


2014 marks our 55th year celebrating the power of work in South Central Ohio. After starting small in only Ross County, we have experienced tremendous growth to become the largest employer of people with disabilities in the eight counties we have since expanded to serve.

It’s an exciting time to be a part of Goodwill Industries as we are constantly seeking new ways to support our mission! We’ve moved our administrative offices to Historic Downtown Chillicothe, opened Edgar’s Café, started offering 24 hour childcare (in conjunction with Carver Community Center), and are in the process of re-launching our new and improved website. Additionally, we are in the process of transitioning the Good Guides Mentoring program (made possible by a Federal grant from GII) to a volunteer program of our own design. These new endeavors have but one goal—to further our mission of improving the quality of life and employment opportunities for people with disabilities and disadvantages.

I hope you will share in my excitement as we begin to bring 2014 to a close and look forward enthusiastically to all 2015 will bring!


Warmest regards—

Keith Alcorn, C.E.O.
