While you may not expect to find a Goodwill operation on a military base, Goodwill Great Lakes provides food service, administrative, logistic services, and laundry to both Sailors and Recruits at the Navy's only boot camp—Naval Station Great Lakes in Great Lakes, IL.

The U.S. Navy, Goodwill, and SourceAmerica are partnered at Naval Station Great Lakes through the AbilityOne Program, providing employment opportunities for people with significant disabilities. Our trained professionals work closely with individuals with significant disabilities to provide meaningful employment with a comprehensive career ladder enabling them to become independent and self-sustaining individuals who contribute to their communities.

In the calendar year 2020, Goodwill staff served 10 million+ meals, handled 4 million+ pieces of mail, issued 2.7 million+ uniform pieces to Sailors and Recruits. This relationship of more than 45 years has been repeatedly recognized and honored by multiple organizations as a stellar example of a partnership at its best.

Food and Logistics Services:

In February 1998, Goodwill Industries of Southeastern Wisconsin was awarded a food service contract under the AbilityOne Program. Since that time, the U.S. Navy, Goodwill, and SourceAmerica have partnered at Naval Station Great Lakes through the AbilityOne Program, making this one of the largest service contracts providing employment opportunities for people with significant disabilities. Our trained professionals work closely with individuals with disabilities to provide meaningful employment with a comprehensive career ladder enabling them to become independent and self-sustaining individuals who contribute to their communities. In addition to food service, Goodwill provides record-keeping, facility support services, environmental services, uniform issue, postal service and warehousing for the Sailors and Recruits at Naval Station Great Lakes.
