About Us

Goodwill Industries of North Louisiana, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit agency that serves people with disabilities and other barriers to employment. Goodwill Industries of North Louisiana currently provides services to 26 parishes in North Louisiana, with retail operations in Shreveport, Bossier City, Haughton, Minden, Monroe, West Monroe, Natchitoches, Alexandria and Pineville.

Goodwill® Turns Your Jeans Into Jobs! We also take your shoes, clocks, lamps, coats, jewelry, books, chairs, vases, tools, handbags, collectibles, and any other gently-used goods. These donations help us provide local jobs and training to people in need and offer environmentally friendly bargains to everyone - all right here in North Louisiana!

By helping people become independent, Goodwill not only changes lives, but reduces the need for public assistance, which lowers taxes for everyone. And a stronger, more diverse workforce stimulates our economy through increased tax revenue and sales. Add the environmental benefits and it's a WIN-WIN-WIN with Goodwill!

Our Mission
