From The Executive Director

“I am excited to serve as Executive Director of Goodwill Rescue Mission because the position represents the perfect blend of experience I have gained in for-profit business operations, pastoral ministry and life in general. I have a heart for people, especially those who have stumbled, fallen, or were born into challenges most of us can’t fully appreciate. I look forward to investing in the lives of those God brings to the Mission and seeing them freed to fulfill His call for their lives, as I seek to broaden and deepen the Mission’s roots and impact in the community.”

– Executive Director Rev. Hector L. Vega
