Jeff Wieser, recently retired president of Westport nonprofit Homes with Hope, announced today he has accepted the role of interim president of Goodwill Industries of Western and Northern Connecticut.
Goodwill Industries of Western & Northern Connecticut offers a range of programs for people with disabilities and others facing challenges to gaining employment and community living. All services are person-centered with the emphasis on the individual achieving their highest level of independence.
Wieser said: “It will not be a surprise to WestportNow readers that our Westport donors are among the most generous –- and our Westport shoppers among the best bargain hunters –- in the entire Goodwill system.”
Wieser, who announced his retirement from Homes with Hope a year ago effective at the end of the year, said there are 22 stores in the region, 29 donation centers and eight career centers. He will be based in Bridgeport.
