Direct Support Professional Spotlight: Rick Smith

September 10-17 is National Direct Support Professional Week

 

Kudos to all our Direct Service Professionals (DSPs) who are on the front lines of Goodwill NYNJ programs every day. They help fulfill our mission of empowering individuals with disabilities and other barriers to employment to gain independence through the power of work. This week, we'll highlight their stories to celebrate their accomplishments.

DSP Profile: Rick Smith

Alex - eCommerce

"I have learned many jobs here at Goodwill and I can earn money to pay my bills and buy the things I want, like a new cell phone. Now I can talk with my friends!"

Larry - Bridges to Success

"I like working at Goodwill because I can bring extra income to my household and I get to meet new people. Plus, I enjoy going around the building to deliver the mail and saying hello to all staff"

Vision 2020

Over the last several months, Goodwill NYNJ has undertaken a comprehensive strategic and financial review to answer critical questions about our future. This process included a comprehensive, top-to-bottom look at the organization’s programs, retail footprint, administration and finances.
