Goodwill Working to Help Kentuckians Clear Criminal Records

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Goodwill Industries of Kentucky is partnering with the Kentucky Department of Corrections to host an expungement clinic on Friday, January 24.

  • Goodwill Center for Education and Employment
  • 909 E. Broadway
  • 9:00am-11:30am, EST

People will be guided through the process of running record checks, reviewing previous charges and starting paperwork. “Expungement” means a record of criminal conviction is erased or sealed from state or federal record. 

“Goodwill works hard every day to support people who seek employment, but need help getting a foot in the door or simply a second chance,” said Amy Luttrell, president and CEO of Goodwill Industries of Kentucky in a statement. “We’re proud to have strong partners by our side so Kentuckians can work towards realizing their potential when given an opportunity.”

Those who attend the clinic will also have access to community resources, employment opportunities and information about Goodwill’s Soft Skills Academy.

In 2019, Goodwill Industries of Kentucky hosted 36 expungement events statewide, serving 1,511 job seekers, according to Goodwill Industries.
