Goodwill NY-NJ was founded in Brooklyn in 1915 by two clergymen to help persons with disabilities and disadvantages achieve self-sufficiency. Instead of receiving charity, people in need earned a living collecting, mending and selling donated clothes and household goods. The founders followed the example of Edgar J. Helms in Boston, giving birth locally to the philosophy of retail stores funding programs and services.
