Michael Williams has come a long way from his days living without a home, without a job, without an advocate, or even a friend. He was living on the streets, addicted to drugs, and taking temporary jobs to sustain his habit. He didn't really think much further than meeting his needs for the day until help came in the form of a job at Goodwill. He hasn't looked back since.
Every year Goodwill honors four individuals and one community leader because of their inspiring stories and involvement with Goodwill programs. http://bit.ly/1LA9FYv
The Goodwill Power of Work Luncheon has been described by attendees as “the most enjoyable and inspirational business luncheon in Denver.” Hundreds of corporate and community leaders find inspiration every year in the stories of courageous individuals in Goodwill's career development programs and their perseverance on the path to success. The tie that binds all honorees is the fact that WORK (an opportunity, a job, a meaningful career) was the force that led them in the right direction.
