At Good Neighbor, helping people is at the heart of what we do.
The Good Neighbor Program was established to be a vital community resource to provide people with needed apparel and household goods, while ensuring they were connected to local programs and services. The program was designed to support other community-based organizations through redistributing donations Goodwill receives from community members to the individuals and families they serve. As the needs in our community are getting greater every day, we strive to meet people where they are. At Good Neighbor, helping people is at the heart of the good we do. Our re-designed Good Neighbor Program works alongside our more than 60 community partners in the Finger Lakes’ and Central New York regions and has now taken on a 5-pronged approach to how we serve and support our community.
GoodCare: Helping people meet their needs through a holistic approach
GoodConnect: Helping people stay informed by connecting the community to local programs and services
GoodFits: Helping people stay dressed for work and play by providing needed apparel
GoodHome: Helping people on their way by providing household goods
GoodLearn: Helping people stay educated by providing training and books to schools and other not for profits
In March 2022, Goodwill of the Finger Lakes was selected as a Neighborhood Navigation Center and awarded an Early Adoption Grant from the Together Now Network to support the launch of our Greece and Webster Good Neighbor Centers. Funds awarded accelerated Goodwill’s efforts to support and connect individuals and families to the appropriate resources and services with the goal of helping them overcome barriers to independence, education, and employment. Good Neighbor partners and community members will be able to use our Good Neighbor Centers to support and volunteer their time to support neighbors in need.
