Updates on the new headquarters

Our new headquarters at 72nd & Ames is coming together, as you can see below. The top is what it looks like now. The bottom is the rendering from the architects.

Here you can see where exterior blocks have been removed, leaving room where the windows will go.

This is the beginning of the structure that will eventually be the retail store’s corner entrance tower.

Goodwill caseworker featured in OWH story

Garry Kern, a caseworker for Goodwill’s Partnership program, was featured in a story in today’s Omaha World-Herald about the difficulties north Omaha youth are facing in trying to get jobs and stay out of trouble. Last year’s Summer Youth Program helped keep more than 500 area youth employed and off the streets, but there is no corresponding federal funding for the summer of 2010. World-Herald reporter Cindy Gonzalez spoke with Kern, several youth who are participants in the Partnership program, some former participants in the Summer Youth Program, and several community leaders about these challenges.
