When you make a gift to Goodwill, you are impacting entire families like Dakota and Jason – two Goodwill graduates and newlyweds.
Dakota graduated from Goodwill’s Security & Protective Services Program in 2015. She had worked as a medical supply technician and the new career opportunities after graduation made such an impact that she encouraged Jason to look into Goodwill.
Jason was working part-time at a grocery store but dreamed of building a better life for his family. He also enrolled in the security program and graduated at the top of his class.
With the help of Goodwill’s job placement team, Jason works full-time as a Protective Security Officer at MedStar Washington Hospital Center and Dakota accepted a position as a Security Dispatch Officer with Kaiser Permanente.
Now they’re able to focus on making their dreams as a family come true. This includes celebrating Thanksgiving in the home they bought in August with the big yard where they had their wedding and their son, Javeus, likes to play.
