Our History

60 Years of Helping People!

Goodwill-Suncoast was founded in October 1954 in downtown St. Petersburg. We began by assisting a handful of people with disabilities to gain work skills and paychecks. Now we help thousands of people overcome a variety of barriers to employment through training and employment programs, low-cost apartment buildings for seniors and people with disabilties, work activities centers for adults with developmental disabilities, as well as rehabilitative community corrections programs. To support these services, Goodwill-Suncoast operates 20 retail stores and three outlet stores.
