Filed under: Daily News,Nonprofit | Tags:, , ,

During the next six weeks, Goodwill will be moving its administrative offices and several service programs to a new campus at 1460 Garden of the Gods Road.

The move starts March 9 and will be conducted in phases – primarily over the weekend – to avoid disruptions to programs and operations.

When completed, the relocation will consolidate programs, operations and staff currently occupying six facilities throughout Colorado Springs.

The project timeline: March 9-11, contact service, Goodwill at Home and childcare licensing will move. From March 16-18, administrative offices and ecommerce will make the move and April 27-29, Life at the Bluffs, a senior day program, will move to the new location. Finally, mission services, life-skills training and support for individuals with disabilities, will move to Garden of the Gods.

About 170 Goodwill employees and up to 365 clients will occupy the 101,000 square-foot campus. The new location will include a drive-through donation center.

Goodwill’s west retail center at 2304 W. Colorado Avenue and the donation center at 2307 West Colorado Ave. will continue regular days and hours of operation. Goodwill’s main phone number, 635-4483, will also remain the same.
