Jayson’s Resilience Shines with Goodwill’s Support

Jayson is a confident person and got job help from Goodwill’s Extended Employment Services program. For 15 years, Jayson has been part of a great journey, facing challenges and finding success along the way.

Before Goodwill

Before Jayson joined Goodwill, finding the right job was hard.  He found Goodwill’s Extended Employment Services program through the Idaho Department of Vocational Rehabilitation (IDVR). This became a turning point for him.

Goodwill’s Help

With Goodwill’s help, Jayson found a job at the Coeur d’Alene Goodwill. He became an important part of the production team. He helped the store’s success and gained new experience.

Overcoming Changes

When the Coeur d’Alene store closed for a remodel, Jayson didn’t let this obstacle stop him. He temporarily moved to the Post Falls Goodwill. This helped him keep a steady income while the other store was closed.

Taking on New Challenges

Then, Jayson volunteered to help the Workforce & Family Services team by cleaning offices in Post Falls. He spends an hour vacuuming, dusting, mopping, and tidying up, showing his dedication to growth with new responsibilities.

After Goodwill

Jayson is excited about the new skills he’s learning. When the Coeur d’Alene Goodwill reopens, he hopes to keep helping with his cleaning duties. Jayson shared, “I like having more responsibility.”


Through the Extended Employment Services program, Jayson not only found a stable job but also welcomed opportunities for growth. Jayson’s story is encouraging, reminding us that with determination and the right support, personal success is possible. Here’s to Jayson and all those who have found success through their journeys with Goodwill!
