At Easter Seals Goodwill Industries! We have a great workforce that are trained in many vocational skills and are ready. If your business can use additional services we can help. We like to do various hand assembly projects, sort, collate, stuff/label/seal envelopes, custodial (light to moderate), small assembly in manufacturing, clerical, newspaper delivery, just to list a few. Some people do not like to do the same thing over and over again. Here at Easter Seals Goodwill Industries, repetition is our means of enjoyment in our work. At your location or we can pick-up?
We at Easter Seals Goodwill Industries would like an opportunity to spend a few minutes to learn about your staffing needs. During these tough economic times it is especially hard on businesses to keep costs down while maintaining production and quality.
Our unique program is a great value. We provide a team of workers with a Job Coach to work on short and long term projects. Our trained Coach is a great benefit to your company and is offered at no charge. They oversee the work crew at all times and serve an important role as the project supervisor.
Our pricing is based on a piece or hourly rate, therefore the host company only pays for production. We also provide liability and worker’s compensation insurance for our workers, as well as transportation to and from your site at no cost to you. Our teams usually work from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday.
The workers and Job Coach at this supported employment site remain employees of Easter Seals Goodwill Industries and are covered by ESGI’s Worker’s Compensation Insurance and Commercial General Liability Coverage.
Since we work much like a temporary labor service, we are prepared to assist you with peak production or special projects.
Here are some of the benefits provided:
Piece rate pricing
Job coach provided at no cost
Quality and quantity standards met consistently
Liability and worker’s compensation protection
Again there is a variety of work that our clients perform in the community including light assembly and packaging, collating and mailing, cleaning and garden and lawn work, folding and hanging, and recycling. This is just a sample of the various services we offer.
We currently have our client employees placed in crews throughout the business community.

In an op-ed for Next City, Tunua Thrash-Ntuk, ED of LISC LA, and Hanna Love of the Brookings Institution trace the historical roots of community self-determination in South Los Angeles and argue that it's high time for public and private sector leaders to support the model for investment these activists have forged. They draw on the findings of their recent co-authored report on South LA's potential for equitable recovery in the wake of the Covid pandemic. Both are must-reads.
In an opinion piece for ImpactAlpha, LISC COO Annie Donovan draws on the expertise she honed as head of the CDFI Fund to illustrate the layered ways that BIPOC community development entities are locked out of federal tax credit allocations and other resources. "The disproportionate results reflect the same deeply seated structural barriers that prevent minority-owned enterprises from accessing credit in other parts of the economy," she writes, explaining that Congress, and the rest of us, must help remedy this inequity.
