Goodwill Industries of Lane and South Coast Counties is opening a fourth employment center to help boost the number of clients it helps find work. 700 clients reported to the agency that they found work last year.

[Goodwill’s director of human resources and work force development Rick] Kangail said the Mission’s 400 to 600 daily guests are “a huge population with needs to be served,” mentioning that it’s hard for the homeless guests to find a permanent place to live without first finding a job. Looking around the Mission facility, they decided to open the new center at the Community Service Hub, where Goodwill’s center will soon be joined by other agencies such as White Bird Clinic, St. Vincent de Paul and Catholic Community Services, Goodwill Job Connections coordinator Caitlin Whitlow said.
