The primary focus and success of MERS/Goodwill’s employment and rehabilitation programs is in our ability to prepare people for the world of work. To be successful on a job involves having sufficient self-esteem and self-confidence, meeting the challenges of one’s personal life and being able to deal with the complexities of interpersonal relationships with co-workers and supervisors, as well as being able to perform the actual work tasks. MERS/Goodwill provides the opportunity to work toward the goals needed to achieve the maximum level of productivity in one’s personal life and employment.

Most programs are offered Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-4 p.m. and by appointment unless otherwise noted.  Frequency of programs are designed on an individual basis, and may be weekly or multiple days/week.  Most programs are referral-based (see list below), however, you may contact your local MERS/Goodwill location to inquire about private pay options/fees, and if a referral is required for a specific program.  Below is a list of services we offer.
